I want to ask something about href lang
I have a lot of domains like that
one-examples.it (with s)
oneexamples.ie (with s)
and bla bla....

Some of them has got dash some of them not. Some of them has got (s) some not
1)Does this will be problem for hreflang tag?
2) The english language can have exactly the same content but with a different hreflang?

*I know that if i do that the .fr domain will be only for france and not for an other country that speaks french like belgium but i don't care as i am targeting specific countries.

That will help in Seo for have better ranking??


My other quesiton

If I have a lot of domains like those I mention. If i create company sites on it with different language then can I have chances to go in the first page of google in that keyword?

I know about social media profiles and that i need to use metatags. Let's say i used them

The hreflang tag has nothing to do with whether your domain names or URLs match up. You don't have to have site.co.uk and site.fr to use it.


What you have to have is content that (to a great extent) provides the same information to audiences in different languages,

or in the same language but for people in different countries.

Qwerty thanks for your reply. I know that i don't need to have site.co.uk and site.fr to use this but I want to have for other reasons. 


I can work with multiple domains?

Also will help me to improve the SEO of those websites?

"improving SEO" means making a better site and 'experience' for real users, not faffing about over  a fairly minor meta element or what TLD to use that's more a marketing concern.


And the answer to the usual but pointless question in this century, of "Will it help 'rankings' " are:




Probably not;

Who knows;


How will you tell?
