Here are few things I could did it further, I don't know if they improved the page later or not.
[support.google.com...] (See the example part)
http://www.example.com/ English-language homepage. Contains information about fees for shipping internationally from the USA.
http://en-gb.example.com/ English-language; displays prices in pounds sterling.
http://en-us.example.com/ English-language; displays prices in US dollars.
http://de.example.com/ German-language version of the content
Now also see step #1 and Step #2 here.
Only one thing I could not get is, can the URL in the alternative be on a different website? I read but could get an answer to it.
[edit reason] I turned off the automatic linking [/edit]
