Do You Use The hreflang Attribute? Google Wants Your Feedback

Mar 8, 2013 • 8:44 am | comments (5) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

hreflangChristopher Semturs, the Googler who is the man behind geo-specific search engine visibility topics, posted a thread at Google+ asking for feedback on the use of the hreflang attribute.

He wants to hear from SEOs and webmasters who have implemented the hreflang attribute to see if they got out of it what they expected.

Christopher asked:

Dear Webmasters: Did you deploy hreflang and don't see it take the effect you intended? If so, please let me know in the comments, I'm interested to hear about your use cases.

So this is your chance to speak up and have a Googler review this specific attribute with you to make sure Google knows what you want out of it.

So far there are almost 40 comments on the thread but they want more.

He wants to hear from Adwords advertisers, right googler troll? Your search engine is rigged to increase ad clicks.

I want to hear from people deploying hreflang and having expectations on behavior (in regard to their usecase). That obviously includes SEOs, at least based on my interpretation of the SEO role.
