SEO and SEF features in Joomla Translate

SEO - Search Engine Optimization. In OrdaSoft Joomla translate - you may edit any text after translate. We translate HTML meta tags, alt attributes, placeholders and title. Your site will full support SEO

SEF - Search Engine Friendly. We translate your URLs, and after you may edit it and change to exactly what you need for SEF.

Sitemap is one of the most important ways of communication with search engines. Adding new languages to Sitemap improves visibility of translated pages by search engines and speed up their indexing (search engines get informed immediately about pages on other languages). Joomla Translate enables to add as many languages to website's Sitemap as you want. Furthermore you can create Sitemap in two formats HTML (for your clients) and XML (for SEO in Google, MSN, Yahoo, Yandex).

One more Joomla Translate feature is translation of URLs and Meta tags. For example, Meta description on other languages will be shown in the search snippet (displayed beneath a listing in the search results) of that language that could draw a much higher click-through rate of foreign searchers to your page.
