qTranslate SEO with WordPress

by Simone Luciani in SEO on Wordpress with 3 Comments

I’ve been working on the SEO of a client’s WordPress website using the qTranslate plugin.

qTranslate is a very useful plugin that has an easy to use interface for managing a multilingual web site in the same control panel.

The only issue with this plugin is that it doesn’t allow you to do your onsite SEO. Many SEO plugins won’t work. I’ve tested SEO ultimate and SEO Yoast for WordPress with no luck. There are available some “homemade” patches that might work, but this is not the best solution.

I’ve solved my problems using the “All in One SEO Pack” plugin, which usually isn’t my first choice but in this case it’s the only one that does the trick!

With this plugin you are able to do SEO with qTranslate optimising Titles and Meta descriptions for each language version of your posts.

For the All in one SEO plugin, while using qTranslate, you can add different meta content like this:
[:en]English Title [:it]Italian Title

or

[:en]English Meta description [:it]Italian Meta description.

SEO with qTranslate using All in One SEO pack!

This will get parsed correctly when the page is shown.

I hope this can help!

    Hi, I have an issue with this plugin and qTranslate: Every time I update the sitemap the plugin automatically erases the other languages and leaves only the default language.

    This only happens in the general settings (title, description and keywords). For each post it works fine.

    any idea how I can fix this? thank you!

  • ano: Gday! I am about to begin my own website and was wondering if you know where the best place to purchase a blog url is? I am not even sure if that's what its known as? (I'm new to this) I'm referring to "http://uk.rankfirst.info/seo-tips/useless-link-building-techniques/". How do I go about getting one of these for the website I'm building? Thank you View Post
  • Marco: Thanks! I noticed the sudden drop to under 1% for the last 2 weeks.. I knew this was impossible. This now makes sense I installed extra analytics code for social feeds a few weeks ago, it must be that. I would of searched for days and probably give up if not for this article! thanks again!
