I would appreciate your help on this issue. I am creating a corporate website that will need 3 different iterations, one for each of the 3 locations served.
The preferred structure would be this: the www.xyz.com would be a landing page with a map for a user to select their location, once a user selects their location a sub-directory site is loaded: www.xyz.com/ca (for canada), www.xyz.com/usa (for USA) and www.xyz.com/sa (for south america).
Each of the 3 subdirectories will have a very similar site and will be in english but will have slightly different content tailored for each area. i.e. different product availability in each of the 3 locations and different content on the blog, etc. But the design and overall structure of the site will remain the same across all 3 iterations. For the Canadian iteration, I will need to add french as a togglable option as well (but french is not needed for the USA and SA iterations).
Should I just create one wordpress site and clone it to different sub-directories and tweek content for each (3 separate installs)? or is there a cleaner solution?
Are there SEO issues I should consider with these sub-directories?
Thoughts on this? Thank you.
