Google Webmasters Question – Localized Content

I like to stay up-to-date with what Google Webmasters is doing so I check in every week or so to watch the help videos posted on the GoogleWebmasterHelp YouTube page. I wanted to share a video that has a direct effect on the internationalization and localization community. The question is posed whether it is more effective to have separate domains for each locale (mydomain.fr, mydomain.nl, mydomain.ca, etc.) or to contain all translations within the main domain (mydomain.com).  The presenter emphasizes the importance of good “human” translations to make the translated site resonate with users best.
