    Help needed - TLD or Subfolder?


    I am starting a kind of deals website with .com domain. I also want to host some India specific deals additionally. For that what is the best way from SEO standpoint

    1. Create a subfolder - example.com/in
    or
    2. Create a TLD - example.in (I have .in TLD also registered)

    Few considerations -
    1. 80% of the deals (content) in main website and india website would be same. How would I handle duplicate content issue anyway from SEO perspective?
    2. Different currencies (USD/INR) and different payment gateways in main and india website
    3. Since I am just starting hence no previous history or link authority.
    4. I plan to have a selector for global/indian website on homepage header with IP recognition, so whichever site user comes to he can go to other site.

    Try meta tag for country targeting.
    <metaname= "geo.country" content=" ">
    I suggest subdirectory will be ok.. It will improve your alexa rank.
