I have a WordPress ECommerce site targetted for US customers. I am planning to launch a different site for Customers in Australia.
As I will be selling the same products the website/information will be the same for the most part. The product prices will reflect the local pricing and competition.
Overtime there will be more differences but to begin with I want to duplicate my US site and change the prices and a few pages.
I definitely do not want to get penalized for duplicate content by Google. What is the best strategy ? Should I go with a subdomain or a totally new Top level domain. So currently if I have abc.com should i be going with Australia.abc.com or abc.com.au ? How do I properly achieve this ?
Thanks for the help.
