Hi @samclarke78, are you asking whether geo redirect users may effect SEO, like your search ranking in google?

First you need to know, for the website to be shown on the search engine results, they have to be crawled and indexed. This is the job of bots that visit each webpage of your site to index it. How could it effect you? Even though since 2015 Google crawls websites from different IP addresses corresponding to locations all around the world, most of its visit still come from the US. So, if your webpages redirect or block all US based IP addresses, if would definitely effect your webpage ranking in Google search results.

If you want to know tips on how to set Geo redirect and SEO efficiently, you might find this article helpful: https://geotargetly.com/geo-ip-location-redirects-and-seo

Hope it helps!

Hi @samclarke78

I'm having the same issue and wonder whether you found an answer to your query?  My client wants to use two separate domain names for their site so there will be a version for US visitors and another for non-UK visitors.  I can't see a way of organising this without setting up two separate sites and redirecting users. However, the content will be about 90% the same in each site version...SEO alarm bells are ringing for me!

Many thanks, 

Sophie
