Plongee Koh Tao belongs once again to a PADI Course Director. This time it is Patrick Tassin from France who works on Koh Tao in Thailande. #One Internet Marketing is working for Patrick for many years now and you can find some more of his websites here as well. One of them is about Scuba Diving Instructor Training, is called Instructeur Plongée and is also in French. All three sites we are handling for Patrick are doing extremely well. They have top search engine positions and convert well and make money online. Plongeekohtao.com also has a sister site in English which is called Koh Tao Diving.Info.
I am well aware that we could have easily done one website in several languages with WordPress. Although this would have been the faster and the cheaper version, we have decided not to do that and build two sites instead that are exactly lookalike but are individually hosted and carry each their own domain name. This way each page of the website could be directly linked to it’s equivalent in the other language creating valuable back links. If you want to see how well this works type “plongee koh tao” into Google. Having two individual websites also allows for two different domain names as well as parked domains. An ending with the appropriate country code, e.g. .fr, .de is helpful to get better search result positions and they are called “International Domain Names“. With this website as an example in mind, you sure realized by that the French version has a .com domain name, we had our share on difficulties to get a number one position on Google.fr.
The client wanted the .com domain, so we had to make it happen. Although it took 5 month longer to achieve a #one position for Plongee Koh Tao than on Google.com, it eventually got there. We have grown with our clients and are meanwhile well situated in the scuba diving industry and are proud to say that we have great international clients.
