comment Why are my sitelinks so weird and not being updated?
Can you show me the GWT guideline? When I've done it I took notes from here: support.google.com/webmasters/answer/189077?hl=en which states this as an option: You keep the main content in a single language and translate only the template, such as the navigation and footer. Pages that feature user-generated content, like forums, typically do this. which is what I've done (and ended up with semi-translated pages)

My whole language specific subdomains are based on them being semi-translated, that's why following your comments I fell I might need to drop it all-together. In 2016, with Google's auto-translate options, is there really room for a website that has subdomains for semi-translated content? Am I causing more harm than good?

Would you say it's best to avoid the language subdomains in my specific case in which pages are only semi-translated? (And 301 redirecting to the no-subdomain english version)

In internal pages, you'll see more spanish, e.g. es.klear.com/profile/codinghorror . Also in the footer of the homepage. The page changed and I didn't add translations to the other parts... Do you think these semi english semi Spanish pages might be a problem?

In some (most) pages the navigation is in Spanish, and all these pages (including the one in your screenshot) has a link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" in his html. Doesn't that tell him?

@Goyllo While I get Google does it automatically, but it's based on the page we provide him. I'm asking how come my specific page has lead him to such conclusions (I might be doing something wrong) and if there's any way to make him update his decisions.

comment GWT Remove URLs Tab has requests for removal I didn't put
@w3d I look like the only verified owner. Also, seems the reasons on each entry are either "Outdated page removal" or "Outdated cache removal ", might that's a good clue? Also, in messages, I sometimes get a "Notice of removal from Google Search" but these doesn't seem linkedin to one another.

So maybe using a VPN from my target market geo location will be more similar to what normally people see compared to incognito?

comment Domain name change but search for <new-name> doesn't show
@closetnoc odd, here it doesn't show in first page. Also klear.me is appearing first (doesn't seem to be a tough competitor) and news articles about the rebranding are also there, which I should assume must rank below the actual site. Which competitors do you see that are highly competitive?

@closetnoc Sure. twtrland.com is the old name, klear.com is the new name. Didn't want to self promote. Keywords are "twtrland" and "Klear"

@Martijn visitors per day is actually fine (long tail traffic). not sure why the homepage isn't showing up and if this might be a red-flag to a problem
