The best place to display the language in a URL is as a subdirectory or subfolder. For example: example.com/en/ or example.com/fr/. This structure makes it clear to both users and search engines what the language of the website is, and it also allows for easier management of multi-lingual websites.

I agree with your answer. Placing the language code as a subdirectory in the URL, such as example.com/en/ or example.com/fr/, is considered a best practice. It provides a clear and consistent structure for displaying multiple language versions of a website. This approach is user-friendly as it allows visitors to easily identify and access the language they prefer. Additionally, search engines can better understand and index the different language versions, potentially improving the website's visibility in relevant search results.

I completely agree with your explanation. Placing the language code as a subdirectory in the URL is indeed a best practice for displaying multiple language versions of a website. It helps provide a clear hierarchy and structure for both users and search engines. This approach makes it easier for users to navigate to their preferred language version and allows search engines to understand and index the different language variations of the website more effectively.
