|Does Google Index Language Negotiated Pages?|
| 2:27 am on Jul 7, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Seems like the right forum for this question.
If not, please move to proper forum.
I am experimenting with mod_negotiation on an Apache web server using the following code in the .htaccess file:
AddLanguage en .en
AddLanguage da .da
DirectoryIndex index index.php
Options FollowSymlinks MultiViews
How does Google index language negotiated pages?
Does anyone have any experience in this field?

Googlebot doesn't send an
Accept-Language HTTP header, so as long as you have set a default then Googlebot will be served that.
You might want to check out how Google has spidered other sites which are using content negotiation (view the cache) - the site of the Debian Linux distribution (debian.org) is a good example.

Many thanks for your answer.
Yes, I figured out that I could leave out the language of the default index page, which in most cases will be English anyway.
I find Language Negotiation very interesting, especially when used on a landing page and pages not intended SE indexing, like for example contact pages, "tell a friend"-pages etc.
