We have recently translated our website in many languages. Each language is displayed on a separate subdomain:

if no subdomain is specified (naked domain or www), we display the English version unless there is a cookie specifying the language (that is set when a subdomain is visited). However Google always displays the German version of our page title and meta description. But the link is still www.example.com.

How do I force Google to display the english version on www and naked domain and in xxx language in xx.example.com?

  • Are you doing some kind of redirect??

Use hreflang for language and regional URLs

like this one

<link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" href="http://es.example.com/" />
