language – SEO stumper: site redone in English from French, no change in SERP rankings for English kws

I am relatively new to Shopify, so maybe there is something I am not getting with the backend/crawlability but here goes. In my years of doing web copy and being conscious of on-page SEO, I haven’t ever seen anything like this.
I am a copywriter and was brought on to redo/optimize the content for a site that whose original content was in French and that was using a plug-in to translate it to English.
The site has 400+ pages of completely new English content, URLs, alt text and a new theme all brought online at the same time.

Key points from before the change:

  • Site content written in French translated to English by plug-in
  • URLs in French
  • Item titles not optimized
  • Duplicate content everywhere (all products in a series had boilerplate content that was the same for every product)
  • NO alt text in any image

Key points after the change:

  • Site content now natively in English
  • URLs in English
  • Optimized item titles
  • All content is unique for every page
  • Optimized alt text provided for all images

Here’s the kicker: There has been LITTLE TO NO POSITIVE CHANGE for English keyword rankings in Google after the change. They haven’t gotten worse, but they haven’t gotten perceptively better, either.
How is this possible? 

8 – Render a view in a given language in a custom command

I have written a Drupal Console command that creates a huge batch of HTML snippets. This is done by rendering a view programmatically (as in this StackExchange answer)

The task

Now I have to create these snippets in several languages.

This works

If I call the view in my browser I can easily chose the language with the respective path prefix: (german version) (english version)

This does not work

If I try to render the very same view from a Drupal Console command I am not able to set the target language. The rendered HTML is always in the default language.

At first I thought passing the langcode in the view() method should suffice:

// Now render the node as HTML
$viewBuilder = $this->entityTypeManager->getViewBuilder('node');
$build       = $viewBuilder->view($node, 'full', $langcode);
$html        = $this->renderer->renderPlain($build);

Then I tried setConfigOverrideLanguage():


// … render the view here …


But this did not work either. So it tried:

$this->configFactory->getEditable('')->set('langcode', $langcode)->save();

// … render the view here …

$this->configFactory->getEditable('')->set('langcode', $originalLangcode)->save();

But I did not succeed. I even tried using a custom LanguageNegotiator, but I ran into a fatal error due to the fact that the service ‘language_manager’ does not implement the ConfigurableLanguageManagerInterface, so it is missing the setNegotiator() and getNegotiator() methods.

Once again I am totally stuck and I don’t know what I am missing (most likely just a tiny bit). How in the world is it possible to change the language of my rendered HTML???

Edit 2017-01-05:

I have to admit I am quite desperate atm. I even tried everything I ruled out above again. Guess what, it still does not work. Any ideas? I am so shure that I am missing only a tiny piece. But I don’t have any idea where to search for 🙁

Edit 2017-01-17:

Obviously the console command is not aware of (parts of) the context, even if I set the language. Just to get it done I am considering putting together a request object which I would then have been handled by the kernel. If this should turn out to be too complicated I could still curl the respective pages, but I have a feeling that there should be another way of doing this.

Edit 2017-03-14:

First of all there there has to be a translation (even if the node data is in no way language specific). If you want the complete context you have to use the Kernel’s handle method with a sub request.

ajax – Problem redirecting to a post in a different language

I have a problem redirecting to a post in a different language. I use the Translatepress plugin and when I click on the link of the video or category, etc … it stays on the same page, I think it’s a loop, I give to go to the post and the page is loaded where it was. I have disabled all the plugins, reinstalled the theme, install the website on localhost, restore 3 backups and more, but I don’t see a solution to the problem. This happens to me only on the mobile version of my website that is reponsive.
Everything happened after installing the plugin “Hide my WP” but like I said, I installed the backup and did my best.

Explanation of the problem:
In the default language everything goes well, but when I change the language to the domain, example: when I select the post the web loads but it does not go to the post, but it loads where it was in

In the console in mobile version, the following appears when loading the network:
Network Load

It starts loading with trp-ajax.php when I select the post which contains the following code:

function(d, e) {
                var f, g = b.xhr(), h = ++dc;
                if (, b.url, b.async, b.username, b.password),
                    for (f in b.xhrFields)
                        g(f) = b.xhrFields(f);
                b.mimeType && g.overrideMimeType && g.overrideMimeType(b.mimeType),
                b.crossDomain || d("X-Requested-With") || (d("X-Requested-With") = "XMLHttpRequest");
                for (f in d)
                    void 0 !== d(f) && g.setRequestHeader(f, d(f) + "");
                g.send(b.hasContent && || null),
                c = function(a, d) {
                    var f, i, j;
                    if (c && (d || 4 === g.readyState))
                        if (delete ec(h),
                        c = void 0,
                        g.onreadystatechange = n.noop,

The console selects me in green this:

g.send(b.hasContent && || null),

I don’t know what happens, if someone knows or has had a similar problem, thank you.

web development – How should a human translator translate a website into another language?

If it is necessary to translate all of the interface on the site from one language to the other, how can that be done competently?

It’s possible to give the HTML code to the translator and let him edit whatever is between the tags, but I don’t think this is the right way to go.

What data and in what from should be given to the translator?

Is it possible to build any regular expression in a computer language with just 3 basic operators?

Many computer languages have complex regular expressions tools. For example, in Javascript you have global flags, escape characters, whitespace character, assertions, character classes, groups and ranges etc. I’m wondering if using just the 3 basic regular expressions operators as defined in formal languages, that is concatenation, alternation and Kleene star can achieve the same result as any pattern described with more tools as for example in Javascript. Is there a theorem about this?

design patterns – Forms in natural language

I would like to know the best UX pattern for implementing such forms. This is will be used to setup the discount of a particular hotel.

The existing swing UI is designed in narrative forms and I am required to implement this as the new web UI. I have checked the natural language form concept a little bit but it has its own pros and cons and few negative feedback as well.

What is the best approach over natural language form and traditional forms?

This is the approach I have taken so far (traditional forms)
