Editing the Country or Language of a Site

Search Knowledge Base by Keyword

There are a few reasons where you might need to change or update the country or language of a site.

  1.   If you incorrectly set the country or language
  2.  If you converted an English site to the local language
  3. If you open the view for your HREF XML account and it is full of red rows it is due to the tool not being able to detect the country or language.

To set or change the country or language simply click Edit File to bring up the entry for this source file.   Click the Country Language selector and scroll to find the desired country and language combination.   We have preset all authorized and common language combinations.   If the combination you are looking for is not listed and it is a valid combination please let us know and we can add it.

Setting a Country Specific Language

Click the Country Language selector and scroll or type “Argentina” to find “Argentina”  if the site is for Argentina but in English choose Argentina English this is will create the HREFLang entry <link rel=”alternate” hreflang=”en-AR” href=”http://www.example.com/ar/” />

If the site is for Argentina and in Spanish, select Argentina Spanish this is will create the HREFLang entry <link rel=”alternate” hreflang=”es-AR” href=”http://www.example.com/ar/” />

 

Converting Country Specific to Global Language

 

“Global Arabic”  this is will create the HREFLang entry <link rel=”alternate” hreflang=”ar” href=”http://www.example.com/ar/” />
