(A) Separating out each language into different pages
(B) Having different languages on the same page
(C) Adding language annotations to his webpage
(D) Using automated services to translate content
Eric should avoid having different languages on the same page because this will confuse the search engine bots to figure out which language to rank the content for and which country to rank it for. An automated translator cannot translate some of the words properly so it may confuse the user and the search engines. It is better to translate the page using a native speaker.
Separating each language into different pages helps the search engine to index the website properly and rank each page for suitable users based on their location and native language. Adding language annotations to his webpage allows the search engines to easily find the perfect content language for a user. This will help the search engines to show the correct content language for a user from a particular country.
