What is Multilingual SEO?
So much more than translation
Multilingual SEO is so much more than translating content – it’s optimising your website for a range of target languages. This covers everything from the HTML coding and structure of your website to the words you choose to use to describe your images. And without it, you won’t be able to grow your brand on a global scale.
When expanding into new, international, markets across search engines, there are a variety of strategies and techniques to consider:
- Translating and transcreating your content into different languages
- Localized keyword research for each target language
- Creating new pages or sections for each language
- HTML coding to signal the target language and country to search engines
- Optimisation of on-page elements in each language
- Building relevant and culturally appropriate backlinks
Why Multilingual SEO?
In today’s globalised world, it’s increasingly common for brands to operate in multiple countries, offering their products and services to a much wider audience than ever before – and if you’re looking to compete with them, you need to start thinking multilingually. When applied correctly, a global SEO strategy gives you the opportunity to rank on a multitude of local searches, bringing traffic from all corners of the globe.
In 2020, a study showed that over 75% of consumers would be more likely to buy a product, or service, from a site written in their native language. Coupled with user experience being a huge ranking factor for Google and other search engines, it’s clear that whatever content you’re serving must have the user at the heart and centre. And we don’t just mean translating the copy – insights into the local culture and dialectal language of your target audience could be the difference between a click and a purchase.
With millions of international sites jostling for global attention, investing in multilingual SEO is the best way to stand out from the crowd, and bring you a larger return on your investment than you’d ever imagined.
