I have created a localised site (EN and FR), I get the following errors from Google:

 

 

Google has detected that some pages on your site have implemented the rel-alternate-hreflang tag incorrectly. In particular, there seems to be a problem with incorrect language and region codes, or incorrect bi-directional linking (if page A links with hreflang to page B, there must be a link back from B to A as well). Google uses the hreflang attributes to serve the correct language or regional URL to the right users in search results.

 

Until you correct the errors on the hreflang links, your website will not benefit from additional language or region targeting.

 

Is this a DNN setting I have incorrect, or a problem with DNN / Google?

 

Thanks

Version 8.00.02, the translation was done under an older version (but presumably should make no difference) - Not sure whether I can find out what version I did the original translation in (if it even matters)

 

Thanks

thanks, current version should be sufficient.
how do hreflang tags look like in both languages (in source code of the page)?

error page from google is
http://www.galleydesign.org/Accueil/t...

the only reference I can find is:
<span class="Language selected" title="Français (France)" ><img src="/images/Flags/fr-FR.gif" alt="fr-FR" /></span><span class="Language" title="English (United Kingdom)"><a href="http://www.galleydesign.org/Home/tabid/131/language/en-GB/Default.aspx" ><img src="/images/Flags/en-GB.gif" alt="en-GB" /></a></span>

I am not current on HTML, cannot find any hreflang tags on that page...
