when setting up a new store view I was wondering what the best of the best method is to set-up multistores - in multicountries.
For store A we have
- storeA.com => English
- winkel1.com => Dutch
- geschafte1.com => German
For store B this trick does not work, we only have 1 domain
- StoreB.com => English, Dutch and German
Now what is the best SEO friendly way to set-up these Dutch and German stores?
- Do I create a store view with subdirectory /nl and /de
- Or maybe with subdomain nl.StoreB.com and de.StoreB.com
- Or would I use the same main store URL (and install some GEO ip); but how then does the sitemaps work?
I can imagine that method 3 looks easier to start. You already start the domain with autority, but the language/goal country gest confused. With method 1 you loose all existing SEO and start again, but focussed on a country.
Many thanks, Sean
