Hi. Currently, my website "kpopway.com" as it is for a radio station, receives visits from all over the world. Even though my target audience is spanish speaking people, I need to have in my website, some content in English, and also Japanese too.

In the past I always wrote my posts using two languages at least in the same post; English and Spanish, giving important information and annoucements of my shows. As this is not the best Google oriented practice, I have translated everything to Spanish, and will need some extra content in English, to target directly non Spanish speaking people. I have thought of using blog posts, in a new separate blog inside a different directory (i.e.  /en/ ). So I can have my main blog in spanish with /domain.com/blog/  and english blog in /domain.com/en/blog/

I know that I need also to include a "hreflang" tag in the head of the posts to tell Google, it is oriented to english speaking people, so I don't get a penalization due to duplicated content.

The big question is, where to put this "hreflang" tag? Is it good to include in the HTML of each post, at the beginning? Will Ning include it in the head of that posts? Can you suggest please, other best practices to consider to have my content in other languages, different than Spanish?

Thanks in advance!

  • Hi there!

    Unfortunately, the link tag which includes 'hreflang' should be inserted at the head of the page. Our tools are not allowing you to change the head for every page separately, but you can make such changes for the whole network.

    Best regards,

    Ning Team.

  • Is this something in the road map? Thanks!

    • Hi there!

      Sorry I haven't seen any task that would add teh possibility to change the code in head section of each page :-(

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.
