Tell us what you are trying to do? I want to make sure my WPML is set up correctly for SEO. Do I need the english language code before each country code? Ie: en-in, en-ph?

And how about these countries that have their native languages? Like no I need "zh-hk"?

Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site? hidden link, hidden link, hidden link, hidden link, hidden link, hidden link, hidden link, hidden link, hidden link

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

Outside of the box, WPML is SEO compatible. I am referring to all the default options and languages you can choose.

When it comes to custom languages, language codes, etc, I think that this answer might give you some idea on this:

But since we cannot provide SEO advice, perhaps you should consult our Contractors or people who are specialized in search engine optimization techniques.
