Incorrect HrefLang Tag Issue in Wix Builder

The hreflang tag is an HTML attribute that tells search engines like Google the language and geographical targeting of a webpage. It helps search engines serve the correct version of a page to users. 

For example, if you want to create a French version of your website, you would include hreflang="fr". If your tag needs to link to an English-language blog, you’d use the following tag: hreflang="en"

Hreflang tags are also known as rel="alternate" hreflang="x"

Here are some common ways to implement hreflang:

  • Content with regional variations like en-us and en-gb
  • Content in different languages like ende, and fr 

Google’s guidelines say that using hreflang is a must, although some SEO argue that it’s optional.
