    I'm a beginner with online marketing and made my first website a year ago and had some success with affiliate sales, but the site is very seasonal so looking to make something more sustainable.

    I just started making my second wordpress site, that is going to be a WP site with WooCommerce for product listings using Amazon affiliate program. I already have the UK and ccom domains for the site, but I'm wondering what would be the most efficient way of making these two versions. Basically, they would be completely identical in content, except for the prices, affiliate links and domains. (+ some products may not be available in each program so they won't be 100% same).

    First of all, I believe I need to do the second one as an addon domain? But I have no idea how to go on from here. Do I have to create a new WP-installation or how? Should I first make the US-version and then somehow duplicate it and make a separate UK-version?

    One of my concerns is also with how google recognises duplicate content - what is the correct way to do two versions to avoid this?

    Tried asking at the WP-support forum but no replies.. hope you guys can give me some tips!

    Ok I think I was overcomplicating things in my head a little and realised that all I need is some kind of a geolocation plugin that automatically changes the price from usd to pounds (this exists) and one that changes the 'buy product' into the relevant affiliate link based on the users ip.

    As mentioned, there is a 'change price by geolocation' plugin for WooCommerce, but I have no idea how I can do the second part; how to create a 'buy product' button that changes its external link based on the users ip addess. Any idea anyone?
