    Hello guys,

    my client has a site on .com with all his other country language on subfolders. But I realize that he also have same site but on Top domain config so let s say he got .com/fr , .com/it but he has also .FR , .IT , it can seem a noob question but is it bad for ranking , I was thinking that Google could recognize that as duplicate content and penalize both site ( .com/fr and .fr) , isn t it better to tell my client to redirect those top domain to his subfolder to avoid getting problems ?

    thx for your answers
