Not indexing all pages
« on: February 07, 2007, 10:46:09 AM »
Hello,

I have bought the standalone version a few days ago, and I have some problems with it.
Our website is available in 3 languages, and I can't have all the pages indexed in every language.
The default language of our website is french and I start crawling from the root ([external links are visible to admins only]).
The crawler seems to index all the pages in english, but not in the 2 other languages.
He begins to add some of the pages and categories in french and dutch, then he switch in english and stay on it.
Note that all the pages are dynamic, we are using PHP with mod rewrite.

Any idea of what's going wrong ?

Here are some examples of pages or categories that are not indexed :
[external links are visible to admins only]
[external links are visible to admins only]
[external links are visible to admins only]
[external links are visible to admins only]
....

Thanks for your help.

Hello,

your language selector uses javascript:
Code: [Select]
onclick="javascript: self.location='index.php?target=products&product_id=2&sl=EN';"
You should use normal HTML links (<a href="">) to get these pages indexed.

Hello,

You are right about the flags at the top of the pages, but you can find normal links at the bottom of the pages:

Code: [external links are visible to admins only]
<td class="bottom-copyright" align="center">
<a href="http://www.faunhome.be/index.php?&sl=FR">Fran&ccedil;ais</a> |
<a href="http://www.faunhome.be/index.php?&sl=NL">Nederlands</a> |
<a href="http://www.faunhome.be/index.php?&sl=EN">English</a>

Best regards,

Regis

Hello,

javascript links point to the same page in different languages, while the bottom links are always pointing to homepage. That's why they are not indexed.
