I need some help with Hreflang tags. I recently opened multi-region stores:
I implemented the Hreflang tags and checked them on https://technicalseo.com/tools/hreflang/
The status showed 200 OK.
But the Aus site is showing there is no hreflang tag on Google Console.
Since I have not used a developer, would appreciate any kind of help as I am not sure why search console is giving error.
Solved! Go to the solution
When did you implement the hreflang tags? For anything to update in GSC, Google needs to crawl the pages which can take time and varies for every site. In the meantime, checks with tools like what you mentioned is one way to confirm early validation. Check another sampling of pages as well.
This is an accepted solution.
Putting in one URL in a tool is not going to give you a complete answer as to whether your hreflang tags are setup right. A shortened version is checking the homepage, a collection, a product, a page for EVERY language version of the store. A more comprehensive method is conducting a full audit using a tool like Screaming Frog.
