Determining page’s language

AddSearch uses two methods to determine the language of a page. If you have a multilingual website and are seeing different languages mixed together in your search results, please review that you’re using either of these methods to tell AddSearch the language of the page:

1. Set the language in the HTML tag

Include the lang or xml:lang attribute in the HTML tag, as follows:
<html lang="es">
<html xml:lang="es">

2. Set the language using a meta tag

Include a dc.language or content-language meta tag in the HEAD section of your page, as follows:
<meta name="dc.language" content="es" />
<meta http-equiv="content-language" content="es" />

The examples above set the language to Spanish.
