One of the most common dilemmas owners of successful sites face is how to expand their web businesses to different countries.
The most common questions are:
1. Is launching a site in a different country going to have any impact in my existing rankings?
2. Are there any duplicate content issues if all sites are going to be written in the same language (e.g a site for the UK and another one for the U.S or Australia)?
3. Does Google give more value to sites which site be hosted within the targeted country so they rank higher than if hosted elsewhere?
