Two different domain for specific languages pointing to one wordpress site

  • # March 28, 2013 at 3:29 am

    I developing a client’s blog and he needs it to be bilingual (english and spanish). Now what he wants that users can get to the content based on the domain

    e.g. Jhon enters http://www.domain.com and he gets the english version
    but the
    Juan enters http://www.elsenordominio.com but he gets the spanish version.

    All content will be validated by php so the users and search engines only reads the domain related language. (i guess)

    What do i need to use header re-direct or 301?
    is it bad for seo?
    will google will google penalize me?

    What i don’t want is to have two installations so my client does’t have to enter, typing, editing, uploading content two times every new post.

    I hope you guys can help me and forgive me if my english is not good.

    I don’t understand what’s the question, if you want 2 different domain so you just duplicate the website,
    but if you wouldn’t like to do that, i would create just 1 domain that detect the country (GEOtargeting) so for example the user type domain.com, if the user is from spain he’ll be redirect to es.domain.com and so for the US users he’ll be redirect to us.domain.com

    what do you think?
