Leveraging HREFLang Elements for Precision Language Targeting
Thursday, 15 February, 2018
The growing complexity of localized websites, and the use of IP detection, requires the implementation of the HREFLang elements to tell search engines the preferred language and market for the pages on your site. It's a serious revenue challenge for any company, if the Argentinian Spanish product page is shown to Peruvian searchers rather than the Peruvian page. This happens either because the Argentinian page has higher relevance and/or because the search engine assumes that they are duplicate content. The HREFlang element instructs the search engine which page to use for each language location.
This webinar covers the different options for implementing and managing HREFLang elements for websites of all sizes, examines how to validate your implementation, and provides tips on building the business case for IT resources.
