Make is stronger with own webpages on even subdomains, using similar description and keywords and linking each other but mainly minetest.net.
So it might get better ranking, and more often found. Also in combination with translated copies as we even have several languages included in the game.
So, after I saw/found minetest.cn (a Chinese version) looking same as the original of minetest.net, I remember my old gewinnbriefe.de fight against bad cheating winning letter organization, using a lot ! of similar copies getting number one in google and first suggested to read about. With up to 5000 visitors a day that worked very well. I was in newspaper, radio and tv.
So i started with some:
1st: now preparing and translation pages, links ... for
* Thailand: th.minetest.one (ready and run)
* German: de.minetest.one (fertig und verfügbar)
* Vietnam: vn.minetest.one (sẵn sàng và làm việc)
* Laos: vn.minetest.one (ກຽມພ້ອມແລະເຮັດວຽກ)
* Malaysia: my.minetest.one (bersedia dan bekerja)
* Indonesia: id.minetest.one (bahasa Indonesia - siap dan bekerja)
* France: fr.minetest.one (français - prêt et disponible)
prepared or thought of
* Cambodia: hk.minetest.one (nothing in yet ...)
* Myanmar: mm.minetest.one (nothing in yet ...)
* Italia: it.minetest.one (nothing in yet ...)
* Spain: es.minetest.one (nothing in yet ...)
and what about other well translated languages ?
But that are already 11 own counted pages for google, and with my other domain I can generate another 11, mean 22 good rated links later for minetest.net.
2nd THEN when i see Thai Language is in minetest client (so we here can use Thai letters),
as if that will not happen, all further translations are useless !!! I am yet at 54% translation for Thai (for this I guess other Thread then if needed)
3rd I go to make the other translations first
* Vietnam - as I had two gamer (dat) from there ...
... but have to stop it ! - reason here:

as I don't know what is the confusing, as I promote just minetest itself, and people are also not confused with same google pages but in there own language ...
and I did not find any complain about the longer existing same kind of copy in Chinese and so as long I don't understand the "confusing" nothing will happen.
So now I changed that pages a bit, with .net and .one to see, and still wait for further clearance what is confusing, and what might be enough difference.
I think most even dont know the main webpage minetest.net at all, hahaCannibalCarrot wrote:Is minetest 5.0.0 available for Linux yet?
So the idea behind is then to enlarge that subdomain system to my other domain,
and hope that others, with own domains would join in, just copy the pages from me, change just the own domain names, and publish also.
So we get a strong cross linking "minetest" supporting.
As there are some, also would have advantage itself, using, promoting or hosting minetest ... domains here.
