Multilingual and SEF

Post by dirk80 » Thu Jun 07, 2012 4:15 pm

Hi!

I use German and English on my website. For German no language-letters like "/de/" are added to URL of the menulinks. For English pages the URL is containing "/en/".

But Google finds the each German page with "/de/" and without. Therefore all content is found twice.

Is it possible to avoid Google finding German pages with "/de/" as well?

Thanks.
Dirk

I have "Remove URL Language Code" enabled and all my url are indexed with /es when "Remove URL Language Code" for /es is already removed. Any help?

You have to create specific site maps on Google, one for each language

I already created a sitemap for every language. But googlebot finds the /es/links when crawling the language module selector in non default languages.
