Our website (https://www.softeq.com) lives on HubSpot CMS and has a DE language version (https://www.softeq.com/de).
We noticed that periodically some DE pages drop out of Google listing. They just disappear from the Index.
This REGULARLY happens 1-2 times per month.To solve this issue, I have to resubmit my pages or the whole DE website in Google Search Console to get our DE pages in index back.
That is a pain, is rather time-consuming and affects the rankings of our DE pages.
Has anyone faced this issue with your localized HubSpot websites?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Hi @Softeq_user !
I'm a product manager on the content tools, and have done a lot of work in multi-language content. This is the first time I'm hearing of this issue - can you tell us what tool you're using to check the indexing?

Hello @Softeq_user , Can you provide any more specifics details about your process with SEMRush. As much detail as possible will help us to debug this. Have you noticed a trend in when the problem occurs? And wanted to confirm that this never seems to happen with the English version of the site.
Thanks in advance!

Hey @Softeq_user ! This is a really interesting issue, and not one I've seen before.
I'll start with some good news: auditing your English and German pages, the hreflang alternate tags are set up correctly, so in the long-term Google should be able to understand the relationship between the content.
But some bad news: Google is abnormally cryptic when it comes to deindexing and is processes and reasoning for deindexing content (https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/40052?hl=en).
That said, I'd love to run some questions by you to clarify the behavior you're seeing and present some possible solutions:
