Hi all,
I had a foreign language site, 12 years old, DA 30
I now want to close and redirect 301 to english site (the same niche)
Does it help ranking on my new english site?
Thanks

If you change a website lanuage can hart the website traffic .

it best to use a wordpress plugin that does it all for free .

it chages all text to users ip country.

Create a sub domain with that country Geo (for example fr.domain.com ) create some content on that lang and redirect the old domain to that subdoman , and on the main domain u can build English site

This way will be complicated.
The new site is a different domain, but the same niche.
I just want to take advantages all the backlinks from foreign sites which will be closed soon.
Thanks

If u point the old domain to the relevant subdomain (same lang) on new site , it will increase the General domain authority + the anchors for the main domain will be clean , if u redirect without creating subdoman u will mess up anchors and won't be able t rank on English seo
