My client would like their Spanish site to have an English version simply for users. They don't want the English version indexed in the English search engine.
I noticed a competitor using /#googtrans(en|es) to accomplish this. In the source of the English version, it's still Spanish, so all Google sees is the Spanish canonical version. No need for hreflang.
Seems like a solid way to serve content in a different language while only keeping the canonical language indexed. Anyone have experience using Google Translate for their website, and if so, any problems?
I'll follow up if I find any. Thanks!
