    I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues:

    Hello Guys,

    I've got a bit of a problem some of you guys may be able to help me with.

    next week my company are merging three website into the one, we are using sales force site new entity 'Siteforce' to create the new website.

    Siteforce is in its first stages of infancy, meaning it looks a lot in functionality, but we need to use it as we can run all of our company systems from one resource.

    The Problem

    the license for each TLD in siteforce is hugely expensive (around the £7k mark per year) so that's out of the question!

    We have a .com, .co.uk, and .de TDL (country specific), i thought i could get around this problem by geolocating each folder using Google's webmaster tools then redirecting the country specific TLD to it's relevant folder, BUT!....

    Siteforce for some odd reason doesn't allow folder/tier structures, so my urls will look something like this (i know, it's stupid):

    example.com/uk-secondlevel-thirdlevel
    example.com/de-secondlevel-thirdlevel
    example.com/us-secondlevel-thirdlevel

    because i can't use tiers or folders i have to use a '-' for structure, urrhh! i know this is terribly bad for SEO purposes, however i've been overthrown, this wasn't my decision.

    My Question

    How am i going to add geolocation to the pages, as i obviously can't group them....

    do i have to add each individual page to webmaster tools as a site, then geolocate it?

    I need advice :)

    Thanks
