Multilingual Link Building Service + Multilingual SEO Guide

Why build multilingual links?

Why do international brands need more than just a multilingual site?

A recent study of a million search results in Google showed that the number one factor that correlates with position is backlinks to the page.  Google’s RankBrain algorithm can also easily tell which language backlinks come from and it’s therefore essential that backlinks are in the same language as the page being linked to.  A site with hundreds of quality English links, but no French or German links, for example, would rank well in the UK or USA, but not rank well in France or Germany.

Our SEO agency offers multilingual link building in 6 languages – English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.  These links, in the form of guest posts, infographics and your social media profiles will be the first contact some customers have with your business. For these to be effective, you need to win your customer’s trust, convince them that you understand their needs and explain how your product or service meets those needs and you need to start this process before they arrive on your site.

Essential site structure tips to get right first

For a multilingual SEO campaign to work, it’s essential that each page on your site has its own unique URL (web address).  Some sites use Cookies to register the visitor’s language preference and this is fine if they’re used in conjunction with a redirect to a specific URL, however if the content on the page changes, but the URL doesn’t, unfortunately this will be a significant problem for your SEO, as Google will only show that page in one language. 

Google also treat hashtags in the URL as part of the same page, so if your page structure is page-1#fr for French pages and page-1#de for German pages, Google will see them as one and the same.  This needs fixing before you start your link building campaign.

It’s equally valid to use a sub-folder (e.g. /fr for French, /de for German, etc.) or a separate domain for each language and you might want to view our tips on choosing a multilingual domain name infographic, if you decide to go with separate domain names for each language.  Either way, this gives a clear target for each language, with a unique home page for it.
