    Hey so for licencing reasons I have a site in a country which is live but I do not want anyone to find it, in that country the call to action comes from TV / Radio so they will be searching for brand term.

    Site A

    www.brand.COUNTRYTLD

    Site B

    www.brand.com

    Site A exists so we can have a licence to advertise in that country / pay the tax of that country for our profits correctly.

    Site A has been set to be cross domain canonical, so in theory a branded search will show only Site B.

    I was wondering, has anyone built links to a site with is cross domain canonical?

    I was thinking that I could build all the country specific / language keyword links to the canonical and if it works as it should, the juice should be directly passed to Site A.

    Anyone done this?

    From what I gather I have kind of done something like this. I made a subdomain Blah.domain.com I then uploaded codecanyon's Preumim URL shortner.

    Then I took my brand.com site shortened it with blah.brand.com and geo targeted that link so it went to wherever I wanted based on users location.



    (Here is the demo so you can see what I'm talking about" http://gempixel.com/demo/short Click advance options and you can geo target.



    I may be off on what your asking but this works for me when I need to control my customers.
