I have a bit of a question:
I'm working on a site that has both an English Version and a Spanish Version. I've looked into canonicalizing each URL to send juice back to the original but I don't think this is the best solution; Especially for the Spanish speaking users.
I've also explored using 'hreflang' parameters (via the sitemap) to specify which Spanish page relates to the English page.
Doing the sitemap method resulted in 127 URLs being submitted and only 3 of those URLs being indexed in Webmaster Tools. Would it be more effective to do this at the page level?
What I'm wondering is which of these methods is most effective for what I'm trying to accomplish? I really need to get this sorted. Can't seem to find a distinct answer anywhere!
