wessel Posted April 3, 2022 Report Share Posted April 3, 2022 Does anybody have experience on optimizing a multilingual TNG site for search engine crawlers? I have a site with Dutch and English versions and family in Netherlands and Canada. So I want to show English pages in google.com and google.ca and Dutch pages in google.nl . https://developers.google.com/.../international-overview... provides an overview for site owners. I do not think TNG has already adapted to this. Basically, you need to inform the SE crawler about different language versions and (perhaps even geo areas) of your site. I do manage several trees that span different continents and languages. Since the language is encoded in a cookie, it is not exposed in a sitemap file for example. A quick fix would be to have language versions available in a parameter in the URL mode in addition to using the session cookies. But perhaps there are other options I think that TNG currently serves different content based on the browser language settings. Quote from same site: " How Google crawls locale-adaptive pages If your site has locale-adaptive pages (that is, your site returns different content based on the perceived country or preferred language of the visitor), Google might not crawl, index, or rank all your content for different locales.
