    Hello,

    Well...I'm not an expert but...it looks like it's saying that you have those numbers of tags on each sub domain...and no errors.

    You might want to check out Google's help topics about this subject - they're actually quite good:
    https://support.google.com/webmaster...r/189077?hl=en (Use hreflang for language and regional URLs)
    https://support.google.com/webmaster.../6059209?hl=en (What is international targeting?)
    https://support.google.com/webmaster...er/62399?hl=en (International targeting, Search Console Help)

    When you say "technical SEO checker," which tool do you mean? I don't really know what a "missing return tag" error is but did a little research and found these help threads:
