Website redirect based on location


I have added some code in my SquareSpace site that redirects users from certain countries to a completely different SquareSpace website (with an identical subject matter) - will there be any problems with this re: Google or anything else?

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.
