I have a multisite WordPress network, the “Hreflang Manager Meta Box” seems to be working on the base site but not the second site. I tested it on two different pages. I am on WordPress version 4.5.
please contact me directly via the support tab or via my profile contact form with more details, in particular:
We can speed up the process if you can create a temporary WordPress user for me so that I can verify the specific situation. ( obviously share these details only via email )
Yes, the meta box is showing but on the front end I cannot find the hreflang tags in the web page. Do you still need access to fix the issue or can you try to replicate with a multisite on WP 4.5?
Hello kodemann, yes I still need access to verify your specific situation because by default there are no issues with WP 4.5 and multisite.
Sorry but I cant see how to add links correctly. Any video? Thanks
Hello dangeroux, I just replied to your email.
Hello. I have two websites in Wordpress, with two different installs. One in Dutch (http://site.mproof.com) and one in English (http://engels.mproof.com). Will your software work with this? Can you explain how I need to set it up, once I purchase it? Sorry, I’m a newbie to this.
If you need more info feel free to ask.
Hi, Does the plugin provide a CSV (or similar) upload functionality to reduce the time it takes to setup each of the alternate urls? Or is the manual approach via the connections page the only way to setup the hreflang tags/urls?
Hello punchdigital, I’m sorry but currently there isn’t a feature to import/export CSV files which included the data of the connections.
Hey! Does this work with Woocommerce&WPML?
Hello Jamesdunford, the connections generated with this plugin can be used with any URL of your website, the fact that you are using Woocommerce and WPML doesn’t affect the plugin behavior. If you need more info feel free to ask.
Hi. I’ve installed this plugin and it is working well, but I have just found a small usability issue. I changed the slug on one of the pages, and it wiped all the Hreflang settings for that page. So it seems the hreflang settings are stored against the slug instead of the page ID? Would be great if they were stored against the page ID so we could change a slug without it losing all the settings.
the connections are displayed in the Hreflang Manager meta box when the post permalink is equal to the “URL to Connect” value of the connection. For this reason if you alter the permalink of a post you have to update the associated connection from the Hreflang -> Connections menu.
The URL ( through the “URL to Connect” field ) is used as the key to determine where the hreflang attributes should be applied because homepage, archive pages, etc. don’t have a post ID.
Hope this helps
Oh right … that makes a lot of sense. I forgot I could access them in the Hreflang Manager. I just noticed they disappeared from the page when I renamed the slug. That’s great. Thanks.
Hi, I have purchased the plugin; but can’t find how to use it. Is there a manual or video? I basically want all visits from Turkey to go to http://seo7.net/ and all visits from all other countries to go to http://dir.seo7.net/ For example if someone writes seo7.net in the url area on a browser and if this person is in the USA, the English version, which is http://dir.seo7.net/ should appear. Is that possible to do with this plugin?
Is there a manual or video? I basically want all visits from Turkey to go to http://seo7.net/ and all visits from all other countries to go to http://dir.seo7.net/
Before using this plugin I recommend you to read two things:
For example if someone writes seo7.net in the url area on a browser and if this person is in the USA, the English version, which is http://dir.seo7.net/ should appear.
The hreflang attribute determines the results of the search engines and doesn’t apply any redirect.
If after reading the documentation you need more info feel free to contact me directly via email through the support tab or via my profile contact form.
Thanks for the prompt response, this is very helpful. I will look into it and reach out if I have any further questions.
Hi there, i have a pre-sale question:
Does this work with WPML?
My website is using https:// does this work to?
Does this work with WPML?
The fact that WPML is installed or not in your website doesn’t affect the behavior of this plugin. With Hreflang Manager you simply manually add the hreflang attribute to your specified URLs.
My website is using https:// does this work to?
Yes, the https protocol is supported. You have to enable the “HTTPS” option available in the Hreflang -> Options menu.
Hope this helps, if you need more info feel free to ask.
Hi there, i’ve got one more question before i buy.
At the moment we get an error like this: “Google has determined that the rel-alternate-hreflang tag is incorrectly implemented on certain pages on your site. There seems to be particularly a problem with incorrect language and region codes or incorrect bidirectional links (if page A links to page with hreflang B, there must be a link back from B to A). Google uses the hreflang features to provide the correct language or regional URL to the appropriate users in zoekresultaten.Totdat you resolve the errors with the hreflang links, your website can not benefit from additional language targeting or region.”
When i pull the website to a hreflang checker it says that it misses the x-default tag.. Can i achieve this with the plugin? Generate a x-default?
Can i achieve this with the plugin? Generate a x-default?
Yes the x-default option is available.
Please note that the message from Google says that:
Before using this plugin please make sure that you understand exactly how the hreflang should be implemented, because this plugin doesn’t do anything special or automatically. What it does is that gives you the ability to add the hreflang HTML attributes based on your needs.
I’m using this plugin with Woocommerce. I managed to add hreflang to all page’s and products. However, I wasn’t able to add them to the product categories. Can you tell me how to get this option in the backend?
I added “product-category” to the Meta Box Post Types. Is this correct?
the Hreflang -> Options -> Meta Box Post Types field should be used to add the Hreflang Manager meta box on specific post types. The WooCoomerce products have “product” as the post type but the WooCommerce product categories aren’t posts, for this reason you can’t add a meta box with them (because there isn’t even a post editor for the categories) but you have to create your connections with the Hreflang -> Connections menu.
Hello and have a nice day! I have a question, it might be stupid! Is this only works for a Wordpress based website, or i could use it for a simple multi-language html website?
Hello mitsman, this plugin can only be installed on a WordPress website.
I just bought this plugin but I don’t see any instructions anywhere?
Hello cheekykev, the documentation is available in the “doc” folder of the zipped plugin pack.
If you need more info on how to use the plugin feel free to contact me directly via the support tab or via my profile contact form.
Great plugin. Really simple and effective to use. I am about to move my sites over from http to https. I don’t want to have to type in all of the hreflangs again. If I click on the tick box under options that says my site uses https will it convert all of the links over to https automatically?
If I click on the tick box under options that says my site uses https will it convert all of the links over to https automatically?
No, this parameter is only used by the plugin to detect the visited URLs in the front-end.
If you want to convert all your URLs without editing the single connections please proceed as follows:
If you need help to complete this process feel free to ask via the support tab or via my profile contact form.
Hello, I have a multisite with 4 subdirectories. All subsites are in same language but for different countries. can I use your plugin to manage the countries? How do this works? can I setup the plugin in Main admin or I have to do it in every subset itself?
All subsites are in same language but for different countries. can I use your plugin to manage the countries?
If the structure of your URLs is predictable you can simply include a script in the HEAD of your theme template (or with a WP hook) file so you can automatically generate the link element with the hreflang attribute. If the URL structure is not predictable I recommend you to use this plugin and manually add the connections.
How do this works?
From the specific “Hreflang” menu or from the post editor (as you prefer) you have to add the URLs of the alternative versions (in terms of language or geo-target) of the same page.
can I setup the plugin in Main admin or I have to do it in every subset itself?
The plugin should be installed in every sub-website.
Hey I´ll only set two languages as default de_DE & at_AT for ALL POSTS & PAGES. So can I do this with the default function or I´ve to add this to all my posts? Thx Jens
I’m sorry but I don’t understand your question. Can you please add more details? What do you mean with default function?
Hi, what I mean is:
Can I add 2 languages de_DE & at_AT at the backend and the plugin add to all post th Hreflang Tag automaticly.
I recommend you to use this plugin if the URL structure of between your website is not predictable and you have to manually add your connections. This plugin doesn’t automatically generate the hreflang attribute, but the connection should be manually created from the specific Hreflang -> Connections menu or from the Hreflang Manager meta box available in the posts, pages or custom post types.
If the URL structure between the different versions of your website is predictable I recommend you to create a simple PHP script in the head section of your page that writes the hreflang attribute. Please take a look on the other questions in this comment area, you can find more details on the process because I received the same question multiple times in the past.
Hope this helps. If you need more info feel free to ask.
HI – I have 2 sites I would like to use your plugin with. One is .com, the other is .ca, both the same sites but one for Canada and one for USA. Do I have to go through every page to setup the connections one by one? One by one would be a real pain…...
if the structure of your URLs is predictable you can simply include a script in the HEAD of your theme template file (or with a WP hook) so you can automatically generate the link element with the hreflang attribute. For all the pages where the URLs are not predictable (different between the two versions of the same page) you can manually create the connections with this plugin.
I received a similar question one year ago where you can find other details and an actual script to automatically generate predictable URLs.
If the URLs of your entire website are at 100% predictable and you don’t really need this plugin feel free to contact me via the support tab so I can indicate you the procedure to receive a refund.
I actually did use that code (on both sites) you are linking to, but I am still getting an error in my webmaster tools:
To: Webmaster of http://deckshoppe.com/,
Google has detected that some pages on your site have implemented the rel-alternate-hreflang tag incorrectly. In particular, there seems to be a problem with incorrect language and region codes, or incorrect bi-directional linking (if page A links with hreflang to page B, there must be a link back from B to A as well). Google uses the hreflang attributes to serve the correct language or regional URL to the right users in search results.
Until you correct the errors on the hreflang links, your website will not benefit from additional language or region targeting.
I’ve inspected your two websites (manually a limited number of pages and not with a crawler) and both the language/region-code and bi-directional-linking requirements in my opinion are properly implemented.
Please consider what follows:
Have you considered asking in the Google Webmaster forum? If the question is strictly related with the implementation of the hreflang attribute and not related with the plugin you can find more people who might help you find out why the Webmaster Tools are reporting that issue.
I just bought the plugin and am trying to set it up. I tried connecting my homepage to specific languages, but how can I view the hreflang tag being properly added onto the backend? I tried doing a control find of “hreflang” tag on the viewsource page, but nothing is showing. Please help!
Hello louriecontaoe, I just replied to your email.
I am interested in buying your plugin but i have a question. I have the same page in the same language but in different countrys, for example one page for Morocco in french and I was wondering if I could see the list of availables countries that have the plugin and if it is valid for this use.
I have the same page in the same language but in different countrys, for example one page for Morocco in french and I was wondering if I could see the list of availables countries that have the plugin and if it is valid for this use.
Yes, you have to specify the same language (French) but different geo-target (Morocco, France, etc.). All the languages specified in ISO 639-1 and all the regions specified in ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 are supported.
What happen if we need to add more than 20 hreflang in the same page?
The latest version of the plugin supports 100 connections (different languages or geo-targets) per page.
One more cuestion,
Hello DANIELMELA, the answer is above.
Hello. It works with woocommerce 4.8?
the plugins or themes installed do not affect the functionalities of Hreflang Manager.
