    Question Domains Strategies

    Hello to everyone,
    I registered a CH domain to start an e-commerce in Switzerland. I also registered the COM extension to create a 301 redirect to the CH domain.

    My question is, if after a while my target would be Europe, not just Switzerland, what could I do? The potential of my COM domain will be limited since it will forward CH, and CH is not good for Europe.
    Maybe I’ll have to move my website from CH to COM and invert the redirect from CH to COM? How to do that without losing the CH domain rank? …or is there a better way?

    What do experts say?
    Thanks

    I would use the .com as your main site. You could use country specific sites to funnel traffic to it. Maybe put country specific info on the ch site with links to the .com

    I agree with Rob. If you think you are going to expand into something bigger, just start with the .com on day one.

    You could put some php code in there and mirror the site. I've had at least one mirror show up higher than my original.

    Thanks to all of you
    I’ll follow your suggestion, I’ll use COM as my main site.

    And to make visible CH website in Switzerland, would be good to create redirect 301 to the COM site? Or should I create a different website with new contents and make links to the COM site?

    I’m considering these two options because since what I know Google doesn’t like 2 domains pointing to the same website nor duplicate contents (and I’m not so familiar with codes ).

    Thanks

    301 redirecting the site will provide no SEO benefit.

    I don't know who told you that Google doesn't like 2 domains pointing to the same website, but they were wrong.

    Google doesn't really care about duplicate content either. Two duplicate pages may not both rank highly (Google will rank the most authoritative version), but Google does not have a problem with multiple pages existing with the same content. There are tons of examples out there.

    The old duplicate content myth. That's why I suggested just mirror the site with three lines of php code. Maybe I'm just lazy, but I'd rather maintain one website than two or more. I'm presently mirroring three different websites for my computer business.

    I’m quite new to these things, I appreciate your help
    I found some info from the web and I thought it was easy to make a mistake duplicating contents

    https://moz.com/learn/seo/duplicate-content
    ….“In many cases, the best way to combat duplicate content is to set up a 301 redirect from the "duplicate" page to the original content page.

    When multiple pages with the potential to rank well are combined into a single page, they not only stop competing with one another; they also create a stronger relevancy and popularity signal overall. This will positively impact the "correct" page's ability to rank well.”…..
