[edit reason] Unlinked URLs [/edit]
If I create a subdirectory version of my site hosted in the UK (http://www...com/eu/)
If I choose "en_GB"It is en-GB (hyphen, not underscore). But yes, this would target users in UK, not in Europe. Perhaps you may need to rely on giving users a link "Click here if you are in Europe to see prices in EUR" or similar.
I think it's a related question but is it the same? I'm hoping for direction on which language to use for targeting English-speaking Euro users only.
Great Britain (not UK)
Although, the more I think about it, this will make things a bit more difficult. The "dropdown/option for people to choose server close to then" will have to say something like:
- North America
- England/Great Britain
- Europe (but not England/GB)
- India, etc
Unless something changed like very very recently, the official currency of Northen Ireland is British Pound and not Euro.
Republic of Ireland uses EUR.
* Great Britain doesn't include Northern Ireland.
I would punt any site that attempted to redirect me based on browser language settings
Q: Can I use “rel=canonical” together with “rel-alternate-hreflang”?
A: We recommend not using rel=canonical across different language or country versions. Using it within the same language/country version is fine and one of the recommended ways of handling canonicalization.
Some example scenarios where rel="alternate" hreflang="x" is recommended:
Your pages have broadly similar content within a single language, but the content has small regional variations. For example, you might have English-language content targeted at readers in the US, GB, and Ireland.
