So, we have this multilingual and multi-regional website with every region on their specific subdomain.

The content on the websites is more or less the same except for a few changes. It's not duplicate though.

The problem is, when I open Google of Region A and enter my query, the results shown have the URL from Region A but <title> from Region B.

I have checked the implementation of hreflang attributes and they are fine. I am not sure what could be the problem; does anyone have any idea what could be the reason?

    Does the site use any conditional redirection based on user IP address or Accept-Language? Have there been any recent changes, e.g., content updates, URL migrations, etc.? What do you see in Google's cache? – GDav Aug 2 '17 at 8:04
  • No. The site is not using conditional redirection based on the IP address of the user. The Accept-Language tag has the following value as the default for all the regions and languages: Accept-Language:en-US,en;q=0.8,ur;q=0.6 We did move the site to HTTPS from HTTP. The Google cache shows the URL from Region B but the Search Result shows the URL from Region A – fahadullah Aug 3 '17 at 11:36

I thank that this problem is indexing. For better solution you can go to Google webmaster tools/ Search Console >> Crawl >> Fetch as Google & submit these pages/sub-domain than wait while. Hope that your problem will be solve.

For example please check attached screenshot. enter image description here
