My indexpage is a multi-lingual (five languages) starting point.
That is, the majority of the bodytext and the title is in English,
but there is also some bodytext in the other languages and amongst others in pulldown menus.
However, if I do a search in a local Google version, with the option: "Pages in that language" only, the indexpage will not turn up. That is Google has labelled it as English and English only.
The question is, if this is reasonable, as e.g. many external Dutch sites or directories would link to the index page by default, with in many cases Dutch anchortexts and their is Dutch content on Page.
It looks like the only way out is always going for multiple single-lingual sites, with their respective tld's and thereby also catching the "searches from this country only" option.
Does anyone know how Google classifies the language of a page?
Is it on percentage bodytext? title? majority of language of inbound linked sites?
