    Hi guys!

    I have my homepage in 4 different languages and every pages are translated to the proper language.

    Example:

    example.com (english)
    example.com/fr (french)
    example.com/it (italian)
    example.com/es (spanish)

    Should I add a canonical tag to the french, italian and spanish pages to the english version?

    Thanks :)

    Canonical to the primary language version the content was originally written for... hreflang to the alternate language versions... most big businesses canonical to the English version. Not sure if there is a reason beyond culture for that.
