My website is in 3 langauges (Dutch, French, English). I have a .BE, .NL, .FR and .COM domain. The .BE is my main domain, where as the others are made using the multistore function.
I've been breaking my head about it and can't figure out why. Lot's of visitors and sales for my .BE domain. Other domains have been online for 2 years or so and I'm getting nowhere.
Very good exposure in Google BE, quite some traffic and low bounce rate. For all other sites hardly any traffic, zero visibility in Google and trafic that comes through Google has a very high bounce rate. Hence no sales. For one reason or another Google doesn't want to index the sites. Only a small part is being indexed.
My .BE site is growing very fast. All the others are dead in the water.
BTW: it's written in the books!

Just read my reply and realised it may have sounded a bit harsh. Wasn't the intention.
Just very curious to know if somebody has a simular set up like mine:
* website in 3 languages
* 1 main website (.BE) with 3 other multistore (.NL, .FR, .COM)
I know duplicate content is a huge issue but google shouldn't consider it as duplicate content as long as you aim at other country.
I have no clue what the problem is. My .BE site is growing with 30-50% year over year. The multistores are dead in the water. As good a no growht. My .NL domain has 1% of the number of visitors of the .NL domain.
20-30% bounce rate for my .BE which is quite good. +60% bounce rate for the other website. As good as zero traffic from Google. And I can't have traffic of Google because only a fraction of the pages have been indexed. Has been like this for the last 2 years or so.
