Whiteboard - How to Add Hreflang Tags

When you start your website localization project, you’ll learn a lot of new terms. One of the most important of these is “hreflang tags.” What are hreflang tags? Hreflang tags tell Google what language you’re using on any given page. This is important so that search engines know to deliver the right language version to the right audience. Website localization is all about delivering an optimum user experience and serving your customers better in all markets.

Creating different language URLs for your website is simple. You just have to know a little bit about coding. Ideally, you’ll have a team of developers behind you who can create hreflang tags each time you localize your website into a new language. But, if you’re experimenting with website localization on your own, there are plenty of resources to guide you. Check out our simple whiteboard video below and add hreflang tags to your website with ease!

    I love how this explains something so specific. Many people don't know what they need to translate their website.
