Google: Order Of Language Values In hreflang Doesn’t Matter

google global hreflang geo

Google uses the hreflang attributes to serve the correct language or regional URL in their search results and many sites that use hreflang have multiple variations of their pages. One webmaster asked if it matters which order you place the hreflang in. So if you place EN before EN-GB does that make any difference to Google?

John Mueller of Google said no, the order of the language values do not make any difference.
