Google says "Your site has no hreflang tags"

Postby furnivat » Sat Mar 28, 2015 2:30 am

I use the Pro versio of GTranslate on my Joomla site, with the GTranslate plugin.

In Google Webmaster Tools under Search Targeting > International Targeting > Language it says
Your site has no hreflang tags.
Google uses hreflang tags to match the user's language preference to the right variation of your pages.


So basically Google does not realize that my site is available in different languages, thanks to GTranslate. How can I fix this, please?

If you want you can add hreflang links into your template.

I wouldn't suggest playing with it if you are not sure what are you doing.

Thanks!

OK I suppose I can just add a long list of hreflang links to the header section of my template. Thanks for the advice. I think this applies to every single GTranslate customer though. From what I understand of the Google guidelines if your customers don't do this then Google won't realise they have multi-lingual content on their sites and so the whole point of using GTranslate dissapears.
