Semrush is showing huge number of pages that have hreflang conflicts.

What can be the solution to solve this problem?

Could you provide more information about the reported problem?
Perhaps a screenshot of the error list and a page where we can see what is about?

Hello George,

In short, there are quite a lot of 'hreflang' issue on our website.

I've added the screenshot of the issues.

Let me know if you need more information.

Best regards,

Hi Sariyanta,

Thank you for the information. I checked the homepage of your website and the HREFLANG references there are as it should be.

I checked the source code and you have five lines of the HREFLANG entries that correspond with your website setup and WPML debug info as you have five languages. (hreflang.png)

Unless you have more information on what is the exact issue that the tool you use points into in the code I am not sure if we can be of more help.

Thank you.

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for the message.

Does the <html lang=""> has any influence in this or only the HREFLANG?

I'll try to recrawl again and see if the errors go away.

Thank you.

Hi there,

No the "lang" attribute in the HTML tag represents the current page language.

In general, WPML only adds the HREFLANGs to show that there are other languages for the page and name those languages.

Thank you.
