I'm sorry for the long title but I was trying to describe the problem in it.
The problem that I do have an example.com
My root domain redirects to a /fr (The french language page)
so if I type example.com it redirects automatically to example.com/fr
So my Question is:
Is it wrong or will not help that much if 80% of my links were built using the root domain before I make this redirection?
If it's not, can I continue link building for the root domain or it's preferred to make the backlinks refer to the /fr ???
