Recommended Posts

Hi All,
Greetings of the day.

This module helps to implement search engine optimization of your online store by adding a hreflang tag and helps search engine bots to know your store supports and works on multiple languages for different countries. The module works on products, categories,cms and all other pages of the store.

The module works on multi-store on products, categories,cms and all other pages of the store.
The hreflang tag (also referred to as rel=” alternate” hreflang=”x”) tells search engines which country a specific page is intended for, which language it is written in and provides alternatives for the same page intended for other countries and languages.

It can also provide information on the default country and language if the search engine is unable to decide which version to present.

According to Google, it uses the rel=” alternate” hreflang=”x” attributes to serve the correct language or regional URL in search results. Google and other major search engines will allow you to specify the languages and countries that pages on your international
website is catered to.

It is one of the many ways that Google determines the content that is presented to users in various different territories.

I have some useful information to share.

We need to have a language switch option on each page for easy navigation on multi-lingual pages. If our website configured properly for a multi-language website, it works fine. It helps visitors to switch language easily.

When we switch language then our website should not redirect to the home page of other languages but it should redirect to the same equivalent URL on another language.

Also, if our pages redirecting to other pages then hreflang tags will not work because the page is redirecting.

Hreflang does not work if it's a 301, it needs to be a 200.

Please visit URL => http://www.thesempost.com/google-dont-link-hreflang-redirecting-urls/

For example, if we are on the product page, we switch language then it should redirect the product URL to another language.

PrestaShop test multi-language website configuration using language switch drop-down option.
