How to do Multilingual SEO?
To get ranked in search engines you need to look at some of the ranking SEO factors.
You need a clean URL structure for your website to rank in Google. URL structures are key indicators that identify the language of your site and rank you in that particular region.
For example, You want your targeted audience from Japan. In that case, your URL structure should be like this:
www.digitalproximity.jp – Top Level Domain
www.digitalproximity.net/jp/ – Subdirectory
jp.digitalproximity.net – Subdomain
You can choose URL structures from these types
You need a language-specific content (forex- french) which can be manually edited and translated. It’s better if you handle this task to language professionals and not to use automated translation tools as Google translate. In the end, you want this content for your consumers, if they don’t understand the content. It will be a total waste of time.
You need a proper list of keyword variations. The best possible idea is to check what your competitors are using to rank. You can take help from tools like keyword planner, Ubersuggest, Keywordtool.io and many more
Meta tags are very essential when it comes for search rankings. Your meta tags can determine whether you can get customers or not, you get leads or not.
We have two situations here:
For example my website “abc.fr” is the french version of “abc.com”. “Abc.com” is ranking well
on all my keywords. So what i will do is i will get my keywords translated in french language and place them on “abc.fr” and get those web pages indexed by Google.
For example my website “abc.jp” is the japanese version of “abc.com” and my target is to acquire the audience and leads from the Japan region. What i will do here is making keyword variation based on user intent::
Web design – Services – Location
After translating the keyword will be
ウェブデザイン サービス 東京
You can also research online to find what common phrases can be used according to your specified region and use those phrases in your meta tags.
