Hello , I'm working on a site that targets various countries Middle East, In the current site design we have separate pages for each location ( not subfolders , just pages) like your-domain.com/location1.html and your-domain.com/location1.html .

Now , competition in few locations is very tough, the sites ahead of me target only that specific location ( they are local) and have country specific TLD. And even with good links I can't beat them. We tried to register a new domain but due to that country we can't do that .

So this Is what I am thinking to , Create a Sub-domain or a Sub folder like this

Subfolder

your-domain.com/tld/location1.html

Sub domain- tld.yourdomain.com

And redirect link juice of my current page your-domain.com/location1.html to new one.

After that I'll geo target it with help of GWT. Do you think it will work ?

have anyone tried it earlier

Gagan

It will most likely make absolutely 0 difference.




Other than potentially mess up SE results for several months.

You mean that Geo Targeting a sub-domain in Google Webmaster tools don't make any difference in rankings for that country ?

I think Chris is saying that draining your link value from older pages through 301-redirects is inefficient. I agree.

So what strategy should we follow, Build new set of links for the sub-domain and try to get it ranked ?
