About Multi‑Store Hreflang Tags

If you have two or more Shopify stores for the same business serving different countries or languages, you may be losing traffic and sales from poor SEO.

The hreflang tag tells search engines like Google what version of the page from what store, to serve users. The tag also prevents duplicate content penalties from similar content being on multiple stores.

The Challenge With Shopify

Nearly all Shopify stores do hreflang tags with a {{ canonical_url }} value. The big SEO mistake is you must have the exact same collections, products, pages, blogs, blog tags, and articles in each store—all with the same URL handle—otherwise your tags will point to non-existent pages (404s).

If one store doesn't contain all the same products, or any URL handle for a store varies between another store, standard hreflang tags in Shopify are bad for SEO. Google will crawl non-existent pages and you will lose organic traffic.

The way to historically solve this problem is to have the exact same store setup and URLs across all stores. If you have stores in different languages, that is bad for SEO, and bad for the user experience, because your URL handles should be in the same language as the store.

Grow with Multi-Store Hreflang Tags

Your Shopify stores can now have perfect hreflang tags to increase sales from organic search.

Without the app, your customers may be taken to the wrong store when coming from Google search, which can lead to confusion in international shipping and poorer conversion rates.

By using the app, organic conversion rates may increase as visitors are served the correct store for their region and language in search results.

If you've previously used a universal language in your URLs across stores to deal with hreflang tags, you can now catapult SEO and improve the user experience with URL handles in the same language as the store.

We have a lot of different stores, so it is quite difficult to set up correct hreflang tags. This app helped us a lot to simplify the process of creating, managing, and ensuring correct hreflang tags at all times. The setup is very simple and the support team is great! They are constantly trying to improve the app and even implemented a new feature which we suggested. Would recommend it to everyone!

I'm glad you've found the app simple and valuable for your SEO. Hreflang tags are a complex topic that the app has made simple for merchants. Thanks for your feature suggestion as well!

From day 1, Shopify hasn't done well with hreflang tags. This is the first app to solve that issue to help the SEO of multiple Shopify stores. Implementing the app was easy with the automatic syncs. Visitors from organic search are now taken to the right store. 404s are avoided when there's different content on different stores. Plus URLs no longer have to be the same across all stores, meaning, the URLs can be optimized for the native language of a store, which helps SEO of the store even further. I had a tough SEO question and got good support from an agency who actually understands the technical aspects of Shopify SEO.
