Country Files Did Not Process

If you open the view for your HREF XML account and it is full of red rows it is due to the tool not being able to detect the country or language.   For example, if your site uses the format of www.mysite.com/ar/page.html and you use the syntax of language then the tool would assume this is an Arabic site but does not know for which country.

If you had set this as a country in which case/ar was for Argentina, we do not know of the site is in Spanish or English.  So you would need to tell is which it is.

country_language_not_detected

To set the country or language simply click Edit File to bring up the entry for this source file.   Click the Country Language selector and scroll to find "Global Arabic"  this is will create the HREFLang entry <link rel=”alternate” hreflang=”ar” href=”http://www.example.com/ar/” />

global_language

In the second case, if this is actually for Argentina, you do the same thing, click "Edit File" and bring up the entry for the source file.

select_country_language

Click the Country Language selector and scroll or type "Argentina" to find "Argentina"  if the site is for Argentina but in English choose Argentina English this is will create the HREFLang entry <link rel=”alternate” hreflang=”en-AR” href=”http://www.example.com/ar/” />

If the site is for Argentina and in Spanish, select Argentina Spanish this is will create the HREFLang entry <link rel=”alternate” hreflang=”es-AR” href=”http://www.example.com/ar/” />
