Page Language Detection in Our Website Search Engine

Our software determines the primary page language by checking the following things:
  1. Checks if the webserver responds with content-language HTTP response header:
    • PHP pages: Insert this code <?php header("Content-Language: en"); ?>.

  2. The page is checked for content-language META tag:
    <meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en">

  3. The page is checked for lang inside the HTML tag:
    <html lang="en">

  4. The page is searched for Open Graph Protocol attribute property og:locale inside META tags.

  5. The page is checked for xml:lang inside the HTML tag:
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en">

  6. The page URL is checked for common language/culture and country codes.

  7. Planned: Compare content against word lists for each language. Select best match.


How to Improve Search Results

Options you can set that will help the crawler:
  • Set Select stop words to match the main language of your website or select auto if it uses multiple languages.
