Non-Indexable Pages with Hreflangs In

Non-indexable URLs which are referenced as hreflang alternates from another page found in the crawl

Priority: Medium

Impact: Negative

What issues it may cause

The target page of the hreflang won't be indexed and can't be served as a regional alternative.

How do you fix it

The Hreflang target should be updated so it's pointing to a relevant page with a 200 response, or removed.

What is the positive impact

Search engines can serve the regional alternate page in search engine results page where it's appropriate for users, improving click-through-rates and therefore traffic and conversions.
