What is the hreflang HTML attribute?
The hreflang is a new HTML attribute that goes within the HEAD section of the page and 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 a menu in the back-end you can connect the pages of your website with the related version targeted for different languages or different countries and the plugin will automatically add 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.
