Hello all,

I've recently created a new website: http://www.naruto-fanbase.com and I've made it multi-lingual (12 languages in total), but I was wondering how I would go about submitting the website into each foreign search engine. Any help will be very appreciated.

Just in case you need to know:

The default language is English, and each of the additional languages can be accessed with adding a query string:

?language=fr
?language=es
?language=de etc. (I'm sure you get the point :) )

I know that most of the coding for the website is alot of <div>'s but I plan to improve the coding in the future :)

If anyone knows of any beneficial SEO tools/coding that I can use to help attract more visitors - that would also be VERY appreciated.

Thanks very much for your time,
David

the webmaster blogs say the support for the language is 'not complete' but we are getting hits from Quebec and Saint-Pierre & Miquelon
that we did not get without the FR tags

From my experience, you do pretty much the same thing as you do for English site; just make sure that you have Meta tags for each language with quality key words in each language. Major search engines are used all over the world.
