Bug in Google products with multilingual web site

Hello friends,

i just installed "prestashop" and my web site and now it has two languages

with a browser language detection:

 

www.mysite.com/es

www.mysite.com/en

 

so first i have got a problem with GA:

when i set my page in Property Settings to

 

www.mysite.com 

or

www.mysite.com/es

 

It gives me an error:

Unable to load property default URL https://www.mysite.com. Ensure all parts of the URL are correct.

 

The same problem i have got in "Fetch as Google":

Google not fetching and rendering those two URLs above but only www.mysite.com/en

 

I don't think that it is something you can fix easily but it would be nice not to have this problem in the future...

Hi Harmonia S :-))

Couple of thoughts.. are the urls meant to have a trailing slash / on the end
(that would be the usual thing that happens, to indicate a subdirectory in a different language)

also when you type in the url www.mysite.com are you making sure there are no empty characters
at the end after the domain name?
(reason I ask is because the example in your post does have a blank/empty character appended to it)

also are you able to pls provide a link to the website/shop?
(would like to quickly check something via my browser)
thanks :-)

Hello Bronwyn V !

 

My URL: https://www.harmonia.cl

 

I will try your sugestion to enter with trailing slash / on the end

https://www.harmonia.cl/es/

Nevertheless this URL gives me an Error in "Fetch as Google":

Hi :-)

Did re-entering the urls with the trailing slash amd/or no empty characters work for the analytics issue?

Re the issues with the fetch/render etc.. that is something that should be asked about on the Google Webmaster Central Help Forum.
They will be able to give you help with the use of/problems with Search Console and advice regarding SEO and having a multilingual site

I have this URL:
www.harmonia.cl/en/

Thanks your for your time Bronwyn !
