Translated page not indexed by Google.

Hello,

I am using Ultimiate Translate for my website http://aboutsingaporecasino.com

Originally I have this post http://aboutsingaporecasino.com/hotels-around-singapore-casino-at-marina-bay-sands-in-2009/

I translated my post a few weeks ago with http://aboutsingaporecasino.com/nl/hotels-around-singapore-casino-at-marina-bay-sands-in-2009/

However, my translated page was not indexed by Google at all. It has been weeks and I don't think it takes so long for Google to do so.

Can someone advise?

    As Aaron notes, you may want to provide links within the Post content to the translated Post. That would be beneficial to your visitors as well I would think.

    Also note that the two urls have the same wording. Google may be seeing it a dupe content and only indexing one. Aaron, is there some way for the UT plugin to translate the url as well? Would be helpful for SEO I would think.

    Hi Aaron,

    I have added the translated page to my sitemap but still not indexed by Google.

    Check this out! http://aboutsingaporecasino.com/sitemap.xml

    You can see in my sitemap, I have included the links of all my translated pages in Malay, Dutch and French. This has been done since 2 weeks ago but until now, Google has yet to index the translated pages.

    Please help! Have you tried any method that works for you?

    Hi Drmike,

    I see the beauty of translating the URLs too. But come back to think of it, may not be a good idea because don't forget we have internal links too. If the URL is translated as well, the internal links within our translated pages may not work as a result.

    Hi Aaron,

    Basically what I did was, I go to Google.com.

    Under the search box, i type the following,

    site:http://aboutsingaporecasino.com/nl/visiting-singapore-casino-at-marina-bay-sands-in-2009/

    if google index above translated page, it will return the translated page as the search result.

    Hi Aaron,

    let me append the language code to the home page and add as a link to my homepage.

    let me see if google will crawl my translated pages through there.

    yes, i checked my google webmaster and apparently 155 URLs submitted but only 44 URLs indexed.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
