    Hi there. I will be building website for my client using WPML multilingual plugin.

    I have two options, either to use domain.com, domain.it, domain.us etc, or domain.com, domain.com/it/, domain.com/us/ etc.


    What option would you recommend more? I am new to multilingual SEO so I don't have much knowledge about it.

    I would use domain.com/en, domain.com/es ect.
    I have a multilenguage site using Qtranslate and it woarks great but have not tested WPML but I guess it is very similar

    WPML has far more options, in general it is more powerfull (did not pay it $79 for no reason :) ). Thank you for suggestion!
