Hello,

Since 13 March, for a lot of searches, the Romanian pages have been replaced in Google's results with English pages

80% from Google's results are now in English instead of Romanian, even if the browser is correctly setup (Romanian / location Romania).

Please, take a look at the attached screeshots. I think the latest Google algo update broke something and now all the Romanians have mixed results with about 80% of them in English. 

Please, take a look at the attached images. I also listed the keywords and the problems below:

“Trump” -  zero results in Romanian, the displayed results are in English;
“Barack Obama” a single page in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Benjamin Franklin” – a single page in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Thomas Jefferson” -  a single page in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Abraham Lincoln” -  a single page in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“George Washington” -  a single page in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“George Soros” -  two pages in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Steffi Graf” -  two pages in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Donald Tusk” -  two pages + 1 news in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Frans Timmermans” -  three pages + 3 news in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Game of thrones” -  three pages in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Adolf Hitler” -  a single page in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Bashar Al-Assad” -  three pages in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Vladimir Putin” -  two pages + 2 news in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Kim Jong Un” -  two pages in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Venus Williams” -  two pages + carousel in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Theresa May”a single page + carousel in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Boeing 737 Max” -  only the first carousel is in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;
“Brexit” -  only the first carousel is in Romanian, the rest of them are in English;

Please, update / rollback this change, it's obvious that something wrong happened after this algo update. 

Users want to see Romanian results, not English pages. :(

Thank you!

I made a video with this issue: http://recordit.co/5t7Tisvkex 

You can see that I use Chrome in incognito mode + Romania as location and Romanian as the default language.

As you can see, for "Brexit", for example, we can't find any Romanian news about this subject. The newest result (a single Romanian page in top 10) is a category from a site, indexed three days ago, so totally irrelevant.

Please, take a look at this issue. Multiple websites are affected by this unusual change. Basically, the publishers can't see their websites in SERPs, because Google shows very often non-Romanian results.

Hello!

I also confirm this problem: English pages results for medical searches in Romanian. Here is an example for "cancer de pancreas (pancreatic cancer").

I also confirm this problem. If you search in google.ro for the kw: garcinia cambogia capsule, google.ro will show you  on the first positions the amazon.com. Now the problem is that amazon.com it does not even send the products here in Romania so you show me those results for nothing. 

Another huge and important bug, Google,ro is hacked and for a lot of kws will show on the first page, all results, simple russian pages with redirect to a product in Romanian language. Example, check what results offers google.ro if you search the kw: cele mai eficiente pastile de slabit . And this is just a kw because the list is long with kws that google will show those russian pages with redirect.

Accordingly to Semrush tool, the organic visibility for Huffpost / BBC increased with 263% / 332%. The Romanian results are pushed below, on the 2nd / 3rd page...

Notice that this is just a small sample.

Do you have any news about the reported problem? A lot of big websites have been excluded from Google's news carousels. 

Only a few products appear in these spots. 

Is there a manual penalty? Are these sites excluded from news? If I search them in "Google News" specifically, the sites are listed, but in the organic search, are excluded. 

Is there any relation with the problem mentioned in these articles? Are all these sites manually blacklisted? 


Thank you!
