    implementaion of hreflang


    Hello

    I'm new member in this forum not in SEO It's still a pleasure to contribute in constructive Topics.
    I share with you my question :

    I have a multi-country and mutli-mango website: 2-3 language for each region. I take the example of the french
    Language i have 3 versions on France , Belgium and Luxembourg

    I wonder is what my implementaion of hreflang below is correct, especially about the x-default tag :

    For Belgium :

    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.be/belgium/fr/" hreflang="fr-BE" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.fr/france/fr/" hreflang="fr" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.ch/switzerland/fr/" hreflang="fr-CH" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.lu/luxembourg/fr/" hreflang="fr-LU" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.fr/france/fr/" hreflang="x-default" />
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.be/belgium/fr/" />


    For Luxembourg :

    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.lu/luxembourg/fr/" hreflang="fr-LU" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.be/belgium/fr/" hreflang="fr-BE" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.fr/france/fr/" hreflang="fr" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.fr/france/fr/" hreflang="x-default" />
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.lu/luxembourg/fr/" />

    For France :

    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.fr/france/fr/" hreflang="fr" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.be/belgium/fr/" hreflang="fr-BE" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.lu/luxembourg/fr/" hreflang="fr-LU" />
    <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.example.fr/france/fr/" hreflang="x-default" />
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.fr/france/fr/" />
