Hello Yannick, Watched the 4SEO video on basicjoomla.com. Looks promising.Is the way to use 4SEO on a multilingual website the same as for unilingual sites or is there a specific approach or thing to watch out for?  Will 4SEO, for instance, create and post a sitemap for each language and will it create an independent set of results for each language? Best regards,Janbol

Hi Janbol

Thanks for watching this and glad you found it useful. There's no difference to 4SEO how many languages are on the site.

It works as a crawler, so basically starts with the home page, search for all links it finds and then crawl each of these new pages, and so on until there's no more pages to crawl (it also keeps watching rendered pages to check if they have changed compared to the crawled one. If so, it will put them up for re-crawling, al in the background).

So a link is a link, no matter the language.

As for the sitemap, we do not do separate sitemaps but instead use a single index file, more suited for larger site. Each file in the sitemap index never has more than 1000 pages listed in it. And files are separate per language indeed.

Here is how it looks on a (small) test site:

<sitemapindex xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">

If there were more pages in each languages, you may have multiple files per languages, named for instance:


This ensures small sitemap files are always used.

Best regards
