On I get the following message:

"You have not specified the language of your website. Use the META Language Tag to specify the natural language of your website."

How can I do that?

Thanks in advance.
Best regards

Hello Francesco

Thank you for asking this question. There is not currently the option to add the website language in the Yola meta tags configuration fields.

However, we may be able to help you with this problem. Please send an email to with the details of your website and meta tag request and we will get back to as soon as possible.

Thank you

Did anything ever get sorted for this as I was going to ask the same question. I have 3 websites through Yola and the same thing is coming up for all of them.

Hello Imi Parking

Yes, let me be bold and say that everything gets sorted with Yola! :-)

We are constantly improving Yola, so we have also created a more convenient solution for this. You can now set up your site language easily by following these steps:
  1. Open your website in the Sitebuilder.

  2. Click on Site > Site Settings.

  3. In the Site Properties area, click on Language.

  4. Select your language.

  5. Click on All settings to go back and save the changes.

  6. Republish your site by clicking on the green Publish to the web button.

Please let me know if you still get those messages afterwards.
