Hello

We manage an online shop in french and EUR that is www.luisa-paixao.com

We have translated the shop using langify app to sell in Europe in EUR with www.luisa-paixao.eu

A big part of the orders are coming from USA !!??

Good ! We decided to open a new Shopify account in USD, we linked it to the other one with Syncio and we are ready to start to sell in the USA in USD with www.luisa-paixao.us

BUT 

www.luisa-paixao.eu and www.luisa-paixao.us are exactly the same and as we have worked a lot on our SEO, We don't want to loose our positions because of duplicate content.

Could you help by sharing tips and best practices ?

Hi @LuisaP, thanks for your post.

Are you selling to these markets from individual Shopify stores, or have you expanded and done translations all from a single store?

Ok, for what you are doing, it's very possible to do this all from a single Shopify store - this way the SEO is handled for you already and duplicate content does not appear.

If you choose to continue to run from multiple sites, then you will need to implement hreflang tags in your site's theme to indicate to Google and other search engines which site corresponds to which country/region: https://help.shopify.com/en/themes/development/theme-store-requirements/internationalizing/using-hre...
