Magento 2 Multilingual Alternate Hreflang SEO Tags

Compatible with Magento 2 community and enterprise 2.3.3 - 2.4.x including cloud edition

 

Why is it necessary to use Hreflang attribute?

Hreflang attribute is a way to mark up the pages that have same or similar content in multiple languages.
It helps search engines to understand how to handle multilingual or multi-region websites which leads to increase in conversions and decrease in bounce rate.

Hreflang attribute is mainly used to address below issues:

  • Duplicate content issue because of targeting different international markets with the same language
  • Duplicate content issue because of targeting different international markets with different languages
  • Targeting issues owing to targeting a country market with different languages

 

What is the Role of Hreflang in SEO?

When searching something on search engines, the search results greatly depend upon the location and the search language of the user. If one person searches for something in a language then obviously they would not want to see the results in a different language. This causes one version of the page to rank higher than others. Also due to the same content in all pages with different languages causes duplicate content issues where search engines tend not to index duplicate content hugely affecting the page rankings. With the help of Magento 2 Hreflang Tags, you can explicitly tell search engines such as Google about the localized version of pages i.e based on Language/Region.

 

Why do I need an Hreflang Extension in Magento 2?

Hreflang attribute is a problem that many people are facing. Its very important that the tags are implemented correctly on your site.
With the help of this extension you can automatically generate Hreflang tag for Products/Categories/CMS pages and can avoid duplicate content issues. A priority is set to pick the URL for hreflang. The highes priority is given to the override canonical URL if this is set for any product/category/CMS page then this URL will be picked in the hreflang. The second highest priroity is given to the primary category. If the primary category is set and no override canonical URL is set then this URL will be picked in the hreflang. Lastly, if none of these two is set then the default path is included in the hreflang tag. It is developed as per the guidelines defined by Google to avoid any implementation issues.

However, my store has a multi-website structure and some of these websites have various store views, for instance, retail, Germany, France, etc. For some of these websites and store views, I want to let search engines know that these websites are not targeting any specific language or region i.e add Hreflang X-Default in selected store views or websites.
