The real challenge in building an HREFLang XML sitemap is mapping the alternative URL’s to each other. All the other “free tools” force you to align the URL’s in CSV and then once the hard, and manual sorting is done, upload them to assemble the files. We do all of that for you. All we need to understand is how your URL’s indicate the country and language of each page. While this can seem complicated we allow you to pick the format that matches your site and we do the rest. We have accounted for over 100 different URL formats including subdirectories, sub domains and even ccTLD’s. For more information please review our HREF Builder URL Mapping FAQ.
In addition to mapping exact match URL’s, our newest feature, Localized Directory Mapping, allows us to match translated directories and URL’s to map them to ensure you have a complete set of matched URL’s. For more information please review our Mapping Translated Directories FAQ.
