Re: How to add a hreflang tag to a multi language site?

There is a great module that helps to add alternate tags directly from the admin. It is great since they could be set even by someone without technical skills as well as it is simpler to add them from the admin for someone skilled.

The extension is Magento 2 Hreflang.

Hreflang is a technical solution for sites that have equal (or similar) content in different languages and/or target multiple locations.

Hreflang attribute can be used in multilingual and multi-region site environments.

Helps you to avoid content duplicates and communicate Google about different languages and store views of your website and helps you to improve your SEO rankings.You can add Hreflang tags on your products, categories and all other store pages.

 example 

<link rel="alternate" href="http://example.com/" hreflang="en" />

<link rel="alternate" href="http://example.com/en-gb/" hreflang="en-gb"/>

<link rel="alternate" href="http://example.com/en-au/" hreflang="x-default"/>

As there are different SEO extensions to manage this, In my projects I came across these extensions

1.https://marketplace.magento.com/fme-hreflang-tag-implementer.html

As this is only to manage hreflang tags

2.https://amasty.com/magento-seo-toolkit.html

As this manages whole SEO for your website

 

Thank You.
