    Thanks for pointing out these potential issues before implementing the hreflang-tag. Nevertheless, the tag could help solving cannibalization issues when e.g. serving contents in the same language on several ccTLDs. For example having the same contents or slightly different on your *.co.uk .ie and .eu site.

    And if you are big website, it pays to not implement hreflang at all: http://www.theseotailor.com.au/blog/big-seo-sites-hreflang/ – in the case of Tripavisor, not only do they not get penalised for no hreflang with duplicate content, they’ve even managed to pull off multiple listings above their competitors that have implemented hreflang.

    That’s a pretty interesting study you have there! A pity we won’t know if it would make a difference if booking.com would not have the hreflang-tag implemented…

    I assume on a site-wide basis the “Geo-Targeting-Tool-Kit” which Andy menioned in the article should work best and probably you won’t need the hreflang-tag at all. But it could help on page-level, e.g. you have a page with a contact form featuring different contact details for UK, Ireland, USA etc. pp.
