This is going to be largely based on the location of the searcher IP address and how you have your settings configured to target language usage. You could use a VPN to test various locations and how they are displaying your site and adjust accordingly.

Try browsing your site from these other locations and see what language appears. Generally, if you have your page titles (H1) and meta descriptions match the content of what’s at the top of your page, google will eventually accept this upon crawl and update what’s displayed in SERPs.

Thanks for your question, @Gopakel. We have discussed this quesiton before on this forum and the general view is that your website has probably been hacked.

This is what I found on the internet about the matter:
I have not examined everything on the above list: I don't endorse any services or solutions that may be offered and I have no association with any products, organisations or services named above. The above list is incomplete; you can probably find other information if you search Google for "Japanese keyword hack".

I hope this information helps. Good luck fixing the problem. 8)

Hi,

I searched for your site name in Google and I can see the first result is indeed something with Japanese characters.

But the thing is: this page is not from your site. It's coming from a subdomain of your site, swg.keltron.org/ and it appears to be showing a database or resume.

In other words, you've put all your data about people applying to work for you publicly available on that site.

So you've not been hacked but you hacked yourself, I'd say.

I'm not sure why Google put this as the 1st result but they did.

You should make that subdomain private immediately, this is a major privacy breach.
