django-localeurl sitemap.xml generation concerning SEO

Issue #29 resolved
scrapper
created an issue

Hello Carl, hello "django-localeurl" friends.

this is more a question, than a proposal, but I want that others are able to search the web for this topic, as I guess they will have similar concerns.

Status:

I have installed "django-localeurl" successfully. After some redirecting troubles... don't worry :-) it works fine, but...

The Problem:

How does django-localeurl perform concerning SEO? The "problem" is, if the browsers main language is "en" the sitemap.xml links are created with http://example.com/EN/websitename/foo.html if the browsers main language is "de" the sitemap.xml links are created with http://example.com/DE/websitename/foo.html and so on....

Question:

So it again depends on the google-bot settings (language settings) which urls are sent to google webindex. Does google know, it should search the sitemap.xml area with different bot language settings, to realize that there are multiple languages?

Solution: I see, this is the way to go I guess. [[http://packages.python.org/django-localeurl/usage.html#sitemaps|django-localeurl-Sitemaps]]

This as a very important SEO question.

Thank you very much in advance for giving answers on that topic! sc
