    What is the best way to deal with a blog acting as subdomain (blog.domain.com) when you have 3 regional website versions (uk.domain.com, us.domain.com, and aus.domain.com)?

    I am facing a big problem for proper distribution of link juice to the three main websites. The point is that I have one blog, in which I have general content not targeting any specific market, but the link juice cannot be distributed properly across three websites, because I have a script to determine visitor?s region and serve him the right regional website.

    It uses a geoip script for Apache to redirect a visitor to their proper subdomain by determining which continent they are connecting from based off their IP address. Apache can use any type of redirect for this purpose, but we're using 302 to maintain user experience without using a 301 which might permanently redirect a crawler to only one version of the website.
    That cannot be done without 302 redirect, which means sending no link juice from the blog subdomain to the main websites.

    So, when you click on the logo from blog.domian.com, the script determines visitor region, and then 302 to the proper website.

    I don?t have main domain like domain.com. Instead the script is acting on this domain so that it 302 redirects to regional website according user location.

    The situation is complicated because you can?t send equal link juice to 3 regional website, having only one general blog.

    Even worse, none of the regional websites receives link juice from neither individual posts, nor blog.domain.com because of the 302 redirect.

    Any help is appreciated.
