What is the hreflang HTML attribute?
The hreflang HTML attribute, which goes inside link elements included in the HEAD section of the page, helps search engines understand that certain pages are targeted for a specified language or country. By implementing this attribute you can send your users to the targeted pages and greatly increase the SEO performance of your website.
Why a plugin?
The implementation of the hreflang attribute in a website powered by WordPress can be a very cumbersome process without a specific plugin, for this reason i developed Hreflang Manager.
How does it work?
With the “Connections” menu or with the “Hreflang Manager” meta box you can connect the pages of your website with the related versions targeted for different languages or different countries. The plugin will automatically handle your connections by adding the proper html markup in the HEAD section of the selected pages.
In the documentation that comes attached with this plugin I’ve included various examples with related images and three video tutorials, if this is not enough for you feel free to contact the plugin developer.
