40+ Tools to Advance Your International SEO Process – Moz

One of the most frequent questions I get is about the tools that I use for international SEO, and although I included most of them in my international SEO presentation at MozCon , since I didn’t had the time to focus on them, I would like to share how I use them to support my international SEO activities. There are tools to support every part of your journey, including identifying the potential, targeting an international audience, optimizing and promoting the websites, earning international popularity, and measuring and achieving benefit with the international SEO process. Let’s get started! Your initial international search status In the Google Analytics “Demographics” report, check your current visits, conversions, conversion rate volume, and trends coming from different countries and languages, along the traffic sources, keywords, and pages used. Your international search potential SEMrush , SearchMetrics Essentials , Moz Keyword Difficulty Tool Beyond researching the search volume for relevant keywords in the language and country that you want to target (using the keyword tool of the most popular search engine in the relevant country), you can also use tools like SEMrush and SearchMetrics which support many countries to identify your current market activity and competitors. To find out which search engine is the most popular in your target country, you can use StatCounter or Alexa, and then use their keyword tools to verify the specific search volume. It would most likely be Google Keyword Planner for the western world that mostly uses Google, Yandex Keyword Statistics for Russia, and Baidu Index for China.

It would most likely be Google Keyword Planner for the western world that mostly uses Google, Yandex Keyword Statistics for Russia, and Baidu Index for China. Your international keyword ideas Identify additional keyword ideas with Ubersuggest (where you can choose between many different languages and countries) and the Suggestion Keyword Finder tool. Why I don’t recommend Google’s Global Market Finder I’m also frequently asked why I don’t recommend (or recommend, but only very carefully) Google’s Global Market Finder in my International SEO advice, and here’s the reason: It’s frequently inaccurate with the translations and term localization, and can easily lead to confusion and misunderstandings. The tool has an “important note” below the results: “…since the translations are created using Google Translate, they are not always perfect so be sure to confirm that the terms you’re selecting are accurate…” Even so, people usually assume that since it’s a Google tool the results should be okay. In some cases, though, when you’re not a native speaker of a language, it’s very hard to know for sure when it’s right or not. Because of this, the tool is useless most of the time, since it only adds additional complexity to the process. In the end, you’ll need native support anyway, as well as validation with other keyword tools for more accurate keyword ideas and their search volume. For example, let’s say I’m from an American company looking for the potential search volume in Mexico related to “apartments” video seo and “rent apartments”: The tool suggests “pisos”, “alquiler apartamentos”, and “alquilar apartamentos”.

Make sure to include the correct hreflang annotations on the different versions of your international pages, indicating the language and country targeting of each page, following the ISO639-1 format for the language attribute and ISO 3166-1 Alpha 2 for the country attribute . You can use the DejanSEO hreflang validator to check the usage on a specific page, or Rob Hammond’s SEO Crawler to quickly verify if all the pages are correctly featuring the notation. If you need to validate more than the 250 internal pages allowed, you can use the filters in Screaming Frog to specifically identify those pages which contain (or don’t contain) the desired hreflang tags. Your country-targeted website’s geolocation Google Webmaster Tools Geolocation Feature , Bing Webmaster Tools Geotargeting Feature , FlagFox extension for Firefox , and Flag for Chrome extension If you’re country targeting and using a top-level domain, you can geolocate it using Google, Bing, and Yandex Webmaster Tools’ geolocation features. Nonetheless, the best way to geolocate a domain is by using the relevant ccTLD for each country. Take a look at IANA’s database with each country code registry operator that usually allows domains to be purchased on their sites, or feature those approved domain registrars in each country. Additionally, although it doesn’t play as important a role as before, take a look at the example below.
