i ask to dmoz to update an url of an old site that was on the dmoz directory
since few year ago :the new urlk was like www.domain.com/en/index.aspx
I have just seen that dmoz has update the url but not as i requested:
they put: www.domain.com
That is the domain page where the browser get redirect to the english
version or other language versions.
So is there any benefit in term of page rank if the inbounds links from ANY
external site get to that redirect page: www.domain.com
instead of the languages version like : www.domain.com/it/index.aspx ?
I'd say that this is the more desirable way to link to your site...
why assume the end-user always speaks English? It's better to use the
raw domain as your "canonical" URL and let it send the user to the
appropriate language page.
Are you using proper HTTP content negotiation to select the language
version, rather than some proprietary contraption of scripting that
tries to guess what language to redirect to, and requires particular
the engines of ASP.NET will determinate the language of the browser.
It works crossbrows without the script serverside.
Anyway i've asked that because
if googlebot will follow the link of the RAW domain:
will it give the PG to the site?
if yes: to which language version page?
