#1631: x-default hreflang tag is wrong
 Reporter:  joostdevalk  |      Owner:
     Type:  defect       |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:
Component:  General      |   Keywords:
 The `hreflang="x-default"` line of the hreflang lines on, for instance,
 plugin pages, now links to the current page. So:

 * if you're on `https://af.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/`;
 * the `x-default` is `https://af.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/`.
 * It should at least be `https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/`.

 Even better would be to leave it out completely. `x-default` is for
 language redirectors, which we currently don't have.

 > “The x-default hreflang value signals to our algorithms that such a page
 doesn’t target a specific language or locale.”
