    Multi Language site mapping


    Hi,
    I have creaeted a multilanguage website and the language definde by POST variable and recorded in SESSION variable.

    so lets say the page located in

    domain.com/index.php
    domain.com/index.php?page=about
    domain.com/index.php?page=contact

    when you click on EN button it sends POST['language]='EN' and the variable stores the value in SESSION['language']='EN' and when you change the language to another the content information taken from Database and a language file created.

    Is that acceptable for SEO or do I have to edit it in another way?

    That depends on how your global presences are structured....do you just have the one default presence or do you guys have regional presences and how much do you guys care about cases where there are multiple languages for a country, if the latter?

    This will hurt your ability to rank for alternate languages, you need a dedicated static url in the language of choice to rank it...I'd recommend fixing this as part as your international SEO activation...
