    Hi!
    I have a question. My travel blog is written in both Dutch and English. However many times, I am focussing on the same keyword in both the Dutch and English article. For instance writing about a country like Rwanda. “Rwanda” in Dutch is the same as in English. When I am using the same slug, having the same keyword “Rwanda ” in title, slug, headers and text, I am now competing with myself? Therefor having keyword cannibalization?

    Or is google smart enough to see that I am talking about Rwanda in Dutch and English and therefor competition is not a thing?
    Kind regards,
    Charlotte

    @charlotteplansatrip Google does see that one of the pages is in English and the other is in Dutch, so these wouldn’t be in competition with each other. The same is true for how Google views duplicate content. As the intended audience is for different users (those who speak that respective language) the same article in two different languages isn’t seen as duplicate.

    Hi @devnihil ,
    Thanks for the quick response. Oke, happy to hear that. Since I score for about 53.000 keywords, but not even 1% on the top 1-3 of google hits, I thought this might be the reason.. I am competing with myself. However, I think in this case that is not what is happening.

    Kind regards,
    Charlotte
