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.

Hi,

then use text instead of parameter
like

yahoo.com/english

yahoo.com/dutch and so on

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.
