    When you want advice on how to use a geo-selector correctly


An optimised and search engine-friendly country / language selector, referred to as a 'geo selector', is an excellent way to link all your international websites together to form an ultimate and powerful network of websites. If some websites in the network have a lower backlink profile, they will benefit from the backlink power of other, stronger websites in this network. The strongest websites in your network will also benefit from quality backlinks from the remaining websites. Using a geo selector correctly will help boost each website's performance in its target country and help search engines to crawl it correctly.

Our audit will provide you with detailed information about best practice for geo selectors and will examine the current geo selector of your site from a search engine crawler and user perspective to identify structural, compatibility and usability issues. We will also check that the correct language is being used on each website in your network.

We will provide you with our findings and a list of suggestions for improvements.

Quality process

The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire to clarify your objectives. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with delivering the audit and is the foundation for all our quality checks. We will need you to provide the URLs of all the websites in your network.

An SEO strategist will analyse the geo selector on your site currently to check if it is set up and if best practice has been followed or not. They will also examine whether your websites are UTF-encoded and will check that the correct language is being used in URLs as well as on the page. They will write a report of their findings and will provide their recommendations for improvements.
