Hreflang on multiple domains

by @lisadunn (157), 4 years ago

I need some help and guidance regarding Hreflang tag.

We are working on a website, say example.com. We are planning to launch the same website in the german language with different domain - example.de. The content should remain the same on the .de website.

We don't want to get into the Google penalty for duplicate content. How can I use hreflang tag on both of the websites?

I am confused using the hreflang tag on both websites. Should I need to add both tags on two domains?

I'd appreciate your thoughts. Thanks guys

The hreflang attribute on each page should include a reference to itself as well as to all the pages that serve as alternates for it. If your Spanish website sells Iberian ham to customers in Spain, France, and Portugal only, the hreflang attributes for your homepage might look like this:

The same annotations should appear on your French and Portuguese homepages.
