Hi, 1st time post here - My english language travel site had been acheiving top ten rankings for years for many location specific keywords e.g Spain Holiday Deals. Then about 3 months ago i started to notice our rankings drop but only for non english speaking countries
Google had started to show a "translate this page" option beside our listings. So it would offer to translate our English language page about Spain from Spanish to English - which of course makes no sense as the page is NOT in spanish
I assumed this had something to do with our drop in rankings so added the tag <HTML lang="en">, language meta tag and charset value to each page so google would read the pages in english and not try and translate them.
3 months on and Google still shows the "translate this page" option and our rankings continue to drop
any ideas on what i could i do to get google to stop trying to translate the pages and realise they are in ENGLISH?
