hreflang

The hreflang tag is helpful for multilingual websites; sites that use multiple languages or target various regions with the same language. It lets Google know which pages belong to a certain language or region, and it also prevents duplicate content. For instance, for Flemish and Dutch, it registers the two websites as different, even though the content might be almost the same. Want to know everything about hreflang?
