Multilingual / SEO Switching from OpenCart?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, a new potential PS user here with a few questions regarding Multilingual (ML) configuration.

I initially switched our website from Magento 1.9 to Magento 2, but found the overhead of the server load too much and server-side configuration a struggle. Therefore, I switched to Opencart (OC) as I have a friend that I set-up a few years back. All went well and configured the languages etc, then it all fell apart with respect to SEO and how OC page and language URLs and lack of HREFLANG support, sitemap issues etc.

I thought because OC was a mature product it would better support multi-language implementation, but Google has completely spat the site out it's listings. I'm an experienced developer of 30 years developing and SEO, so not a newbie in developing ecommerce solutions, but I'm at a loss with OC now.

Does PS automatically add the language ID to the site URL, e.g. www.domain.com/it/sweets/bag1.html?

Generate sites for each language and ML support SEO in general?

Or are these Addons that must be purchased fro full support?


Also, is bulk updating of products from Excel / CSV a standard feature?

Many thanks and sorry for the newbie questions, once bitten twice shy at the moment.
