Page on my website visible in India:
When someone outside India opens the website they should see the following URLs:
Kindly note that Google Search should always show the URLs without "world" in there.
Following are the solutions I have on mind:
Someone tries to open mywebsite.com/category.php from US.
The code will check for the IP location and the user would be redirected to mywebsite.com/world/category.php
Solution1: Add no follow and no index tags on mywebsite.com/world/category.php so that Google does not index this page and use a 302 redirection. This page will be served to everyone from outside India.
Solution2: Add a 302 redirect from mywebsite.com/category.php to mywebsite.com/world/category.php
and also add canonical on mywebsite.com/world/category.php as website.com/category.php
Problem in this approach is loop for Google bot, first we are doing a redirect and then we are putting a canonical to the one which as redirected. Sounds wrong to me but I am not sure
Note: This question is related SEO strategy. I want your suggestions on my SEO strategy. I do not want any technical solution for redirection from .htaccess or IP blocking outside India traffic .
