SEO/Google Issues w/Pro

Postby calmwm » Fri Apr 12, 2013 11:44 pm

We're getting a lot of errors on Google. It seems each language is being submitted or indexed, though we only use Spanish. Also, links to pages in other languages have English URLs, which is causing more errors. Example:

/eu/component/content/article

/sv/program/corporate-program/74-corporate-program-benefits

Also a lot of these which generate errors:

hy/index.php

None of the index.php links are valid.

I have several hundred of these to clean up so your help is appreciated. Thanks

hi,
Please remove unwanted languages from sitemap. Also you can add a redirect rule to your .htaccess file to redirect unwanted languages toy homepage. Here are the rules:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(af|ar|az)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(be|bg|ca)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(cs|cy|da)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(el|et)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(eu|fa|fi)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(fr|ga|gl)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(hi|hr|ht)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(hu|hy|id)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(is|it|iw)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(ja|ka|ko)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(lt|lv|mk)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(ms|mt|nl)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(no|pl|pt)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(ro|ru|sk)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(sl|sq|sr)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(sv|th|tl)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(tr|uk|ur)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(vi|yi|zh-CN|zh-TW)/(.*)$ /$2 [R=301,L]

Thanks Yana. The other languages were not in the sitemap.txt file, only /en and /es. I added the rules to the .htaccess file and it seems to be working. Will this remove the other languages from our Webmaster Tools error log?

The French version is still coming up. (www.calmwm.com/fr) When I click on the American flag, it goes to this URL:

Hi, Please try to add the following rules before redirection rules to add trailing slash and it will work properly

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !index.php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(.*)/$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://calmwm.com/$1/ [L,R=301]
