By what i understand he kind of search you're talking about is Search Engine Search.

Could you tell me how did you realize the results weren't showing correctly, could you sent me the steps you made, so i can reproduce the problem and better understand the problem, please?

Thanks in advance.

i am in bali, indonesia but i think you can reproduce as follows

1. go to [indonesia]
2. search 'nusa dua restaurants'
3. you should find that 'nusa dua beach grill' comes up in organic results [though not mappack]
4. but the listing is pointing to the english website and not indonesian

could this be connected to the use of schema data in the indo site? see hidden link

do you recommend replicating structured data for each language site?


if from you search 'nusa dua beach grill' then you get this hidden link but when you click 'situs web' in gmb listing, then go to english site, not indo

Remember that in SEO, keywords are a very important factor. You need to see which keywords are indonesian speakers likely to use to find your site and then add it to the indonesian language version of your site.

In there, you're searching for "restaurant" instead of "restoran" for example and that alone could be the cause of the problem (but i can't be sure of that. Google has a very complex algorithm to determine search results).

I checked your site and apart from what i explained in the other ticket you have open with me, everything is fine technically-wise. The SEO part is another factor that will help in what version of the site will rank first and to which keywords. WPML only handles the technical part of it and we can only support that part

I would suggest you study your keywords and use a tool like Yoast SEO which could help you with tips and suggestions on how to rank better for your desired keywords.

Let me know how it goes.
