Can you give me some advice on this topic. Right now we are working hard to offer shipping/customs information to our English site. We used to use GlobalShopEx and now are shipping everything direct from our warehouse.
Our goal is to increase sales into Brazil. There are a few things we are doing:
1) We will have the option for a person to change the currency on our US site.
- I am guessing nothing needs to be done about this from and SEO standpoint
2) We are translating our US site versions of our shipping.html page (only the shipping pages). So www.example.com/brazilshipping/ would be translated for www.example.com/br/brazilshipping. Do I need to create an hreflang tag for this page showing the alternate? Anything else I need to do?
3) I will be creating some pages in portuguese on our US site in hopes of ranking them well in Brazil. Anything I need to do to these pages to help pushing positioning in Brazil? Telling Google these pages are more for Brazil searchers?
4) We are thinking about having an automated translation dropdown option available on the site. Machine translated. If I did this, should we create a new url structure like www.example.com/br/? And would I need to use the hreflang tag here as well?
5) Lastly, we will be creating a brand new domain called www.example.com.br. It will have manually translated pages of our English site (not done by machine). Do I need to do something like this on that domain and vice versa on the English domain?
<link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="http://www.example.com/">
<link rel="alternate" hreflang="br" href="http://www.example.com.br/">
Thank for you any help you can provide! I know I am asking a lot of questions!
