How does Yahoo Bot handle Geotargeting by IP (IP Delivery)?


I am planning to seperate my site into countries, by using sub-domains or folders not 100% sure on that at the moment.
For example UK, US, France, Germany etc...

So I am thinking about setting up Geotargeting by IP (IP Delivery) and putting it on the main site www.
So if a user goes to www. and has a UK IP they are sent to uk site. and if they come from a USA IP they are sent to us site etc...

But how does Yahoo Bot spiders handle this, do they have IP ranges from various conutries?

Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

Thanks smile.gif

  • Yahoo Bot spiders does not exist anymore, courtesy of Microshit buying Yahoo's search, anyhow you can use a CDN for splitting your website, quite simple, check the ip (location) of the client, then send him where you wan't to, or if you don't wan't to send him to another server have a central server for processing info and load static content over a CND near to him, ex:

    if the user is from America, use Google JQuery if the google is from Europe or Asia, use Yandex JQuery

    happy scaling :)
