    Hello

    I am creating a site in 4 languages in WordPress using the qTranslate plugin

    qTranslate changes the URLs depending on the language of the user

    Which of these URL options is the most search engine friendly?

    1) http://www.mysite.com/my-page-name?lang=en
    2) http://www.mysite.com/en/my-page-name
    3) en.mysite.com/my-page-name

    Which of these options do you recommend and why?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello,

    They all are equivalent from an SEF point of view. However, for HUMAN friendliness, it's up to your taste to choose the one you like and think more eye-friendly.

    Hello

    I started using the first option (?lang=en) but there seems to be a problem with internal links, the language is always reset to the default after using such a link.

    On the qTranslate forum there are some fixes, but as far as I can see, they will only work if you have the "URL Modification Mode" option set to "Use Pre-Path Mode" (your option 2).

    Does anybody know whether I can change this option during a project or is it once and for all selected and I have to start all over?

    thank you for help
