To submit your website specifically to Google.fr and Google.de, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Visit the Google Search Console website and sign in to your account.
  2. Select the website that you want to submit to Google.fr and Google.de.
  3. Click on the "Settings" icon on the left-hand side of the page.
  4. Click on "Search Console Preferences" and then click on the "International Targeting" tab.
  5. Under the "Country" section, select the country or countries that you want to target, in this case, France and Germany.
  6. Click "Save".


Once you have completed these steps, Google will automatically target your website to the selected countries, and you should start seeing traffic from Google.fr and Google.de. However, keep in mind that targeting specific countries does not guarantee that your website will rank higher in those countries' search results. It's still essential to follow SEO best practices and create high-quality content to improve your website's visibility in search engines.

Additionally, you can also consider implementing the following actions to further optimize your website for Google.fr and Google.de:

  1. Use Country-Specific Top-Level Domains (TLDs): Register separate domain names with country-specific TLDs for your target countries, such as .fr for France and .de for Germany. This can help signal your website's relevancy to those specific regions.
  2. Create Localized Content: Develop unique and localized content that resonates with the French and German audiences. Ensure your website content, including titles, headings, and meta descriptions, is in the respective languages.
  3. Geo-target your website: Specify your target countries in Google Search Console. Go to "Settings" > "Search Console Preferences" > "Country" and select the desired countries. This helps Google understand your targeting intentions.
  4. Obtain Local Backlinks: Build backlinks from reputable websites in France and Germany. This can help improve your website's visibility in local search results.
  5. Optimize for Local Search Queries: Research and include relevant keywords in your website content that are specific to your target countries. Tailoring your SEO efforts to the local language and regional preferences can help your website appear higher in the search results.


Remember, Google.fr and Google.de are local search engines, so it's crucial to understand the cultural and linguistic nuances of each market to ensure your website's success.
