How Can You Augment Your SEO with Website Localization?


Creating stagnant and firm relationships with international customers is what is needed while expanding your base out in different nations. You have to keep in mind the customs, languages, beliefs in those nations. According to several surveys, most people prefer to buy products when they find information in their language. Thus, seemingly one has to spread out capital to create a localized version of the website. Creating a localized version doesn’t mean just translating each word, in that you have to rethink visuals, currencies, units of measure, and any other detail. So, below are the ways how you can amplify your SEO with Website Localization:

Mark Translated Pages with Hreflang Tags

Correctly implementing the Hreflang tags will act as indicators that will let search engines follow how your pages in different languages are linked to each other. Tagging pages with hreflang=”en”(for English) and hreflang=”es” (for Espaňol) is necessary if you have contents written both in English and Spanish. This will help Google to list the right page in Spanish speaking nations. With the Hreflang tags, you can list nations distinctly even if they are in the same language.  You also have to mention correct codes for each translated page, apart from specifying each region. Doing will avert the chances of bounce rates and will upsurge your conversation rate. SEO Company Melbourne will aid you in correctly optimizing the SEO for increased rankings.

Target Local Keywords to Build a Language-Specific SEO Strategy

Google, with its A.I. functioning, comprehends contents after scrutinizing it, places it to the right kind of audience with accurate answers or results. But keywords vary from country to country, even in English-speaking nations, and situations get a little more complicated in non-English-speaking nations. As in nations like France, Germany, Japan, etc., people often search with their native language. And here, low-cost computer-generated captions don’t work. For example, nations like Italy search for low-cost flights with ‘voli low cost’, not with ‘voli a basso costo’ (translation of low-cost flights). So, you need to optimize your content with proper translated keywords and relevant phrases in the page title and meta description. Professional translators do this job more appropriately.

Site Speed for Localized Pages

The loading speed of a page is significantly important for a website, as it also determines the traffic and conversion rate of the website apart from the rankings. It is known that 47% of users desire a page to load within two seconds. However, to augment your SEO, you need to look over several factors that determine the site’s speed. The site speed depends on the host, visuals, plugins, a high number of ads, over-crowded HTML, or unnecessary CSS.  Now, these factors can even slow down the website’s speed. Thus you need to optimize images, minify HTML, and CSS to improve site speed.

Build Local Backlinks

As most SEO experts already know that backlinks hold an impactful position in search engine rankings. Thus it is again important for website localization. So, it is important to get links from local sources to rank higher in the search engine results. The rules of gaining natural or organic links to and from your website will be with good domain authority and relevant keywords. As high-quality content can entice in links organically, but it will take a long time, so it is better to socialize with important local websites that will mention your links. It is suggested to mention the local address of the office if you have one.


However, apart from all of these, keep in mind that localizing a website will be only useful when you have high ranked translated pages. Socializing and meeting local developers might create a scope to identify even small SEO issues and can improve the overall presence.
