First, Is it possible for a website that runs with a country specific cctld for any country, say ".us, .fr, etc.." to have a mirror site with ".com"
The idea behind that is my client has fears about facing physical presence problems in the country he is targeting with his local website, and in case his cctld was closed for not having a local physical presence on that country he won't loose his business by running the ".com" copy of the website.
Second, in case the 2 sites are running without closing any of them, I believe that is definitely a duplicate content. Will using canonical tags or redirects be helpful so as to gain power for both websites simultaneously? Or one should be closed first to help the other get the power without causing SEO damage to the other site?
Thanks in advance.
