    Multisite Rookie

    I know this isn’t Genesis specific, but the label on the subforum does say ‘all things WordPress…’  :)

    I’m considering setting up my first multisite WP install to facilitate a bilingual site ability for a client. I’ve never set up multisite before but after reading the instructions at WordPress.org it seems pretty straight forward.

    I’m wondering if there’s any advantages to subdomain vs. subdirectory setup and also, if I’m going to be running an English and a French site, should I set those both up as ‘network’ sites and leave my root empty?

    How are multisite setups affected with regards to SEO if at all?

    Any multisite users out there care to chime in?

    MS is easy to setup but can be a pain to manage. I don’t see a reason to use MS unless you want to do something like WordPress.com is doing.

    Not sure you need it for a bilingual site and you’ll find the experienced WordPress.org forum volunteers generally advise against it.

    Here’s a good post about multilingual sites which are common in Canada http://www.netmagazine.com/tutorials/build-multilingual-site-wordpress

    Popular plugin for this purpose http://wpml.org/

    I doubt MS would have any advantages over a bilingual site which is setup properly unless you are planning on offering sub sites to your users which can generate more content.
