How to make Search engines spider a multi-language website

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a solution as to how we can enable search engines to spider a dynamic multi-language website. The language change happens currently based on passing a parameter in the URL for the language change.  Currently even if a search is done in another language, only the English version/pages are picked up by Google.

Thanks

Hello,

is the language parameter set with a form submission or is it a link?

A link shouldn't be a problem.

How old is website?

Sometimes it takes longer to get such pages indexed.

You can also check your logs and see if googlebot has visited these pages/directories or not.

Just make a site map of all of your URLs. I also run a multi language website and have no issues getting indexed in both English and Persian.
