  • That's strange, I checked and everything seems fine. Did you make any changes after the error popup? try "inspect URL" in the new Google Search Console. – Emirodgar Oct 11 '18 at 9:16

  • Inspect URL tool of GSC is something new so it's more accurate than any messages we could have in the old version of GSC. If you want to double check, use Google Analytics (or your data system) to check if visitors are going to the correct language site. Check entry pages for bounce rate or country/language problems. If you don't find anything strange, everything is fine. – Emirodgar Oct 12 '18 at 11:49
