    Site in different languages: same site or different domains?

    Hi,

    Im working on a reference/articles type site in English that i also want to make in Spanish. My intention is to build both of them in separate domains, so i can customize each of them according to the language. Like google does with their different country domains. Like...

    Instead of doing: www.websitepublisher.net AND www.websitepublisher.net/es/
    ...i would do: www.websitepublisher.net AND www.PublicandoSitiosWeb.net


    Do you think that's a good idea? Could it cause any problem? like duplicate content, etc.

    I don't think it should cause any problem, to the contrary, it should make it better for the user since the domain would be in the same language, etc...but im not sure (?)

    Thanks!

    I don't think it would be duplicate content and the country domain would work better for you in the SERPS

    I would do country specific TLDs for this application for better regional search exposure.

    Great, thanks! That's what i needed to know.

    Although in this case i won't be able to use a country specific TLD, since the target is not a specific country, but a specific language (English and Spanish).

    But i guess the same advice goes for using a .com but in 2 languages: www.english.com And www.español.com , since the domain would be in the same language.
