Is it useful for seo to use google translator in our web sites?2 Recommended Answers
My site's URL (web address) is:http://www.buzzdownload.com
I want to use google translator in my web site. and I want to know , is it any advantage for SEO to use google translator ?
and is it important to use more languages? for example using 30 languages have better impression on google! than adding 5 languages!
In general, when we determine that a page contains only auto-generated content, we may remove it from our index. If we determine that the largest part of a site consists of auto-generated content (such as when it's automatically translated and crawled & indexed like that for several languages), then we may opt to remove the whole site from the index. This may sound a bit harsh, but auto-generated content that is created for search engines is a really bad idea and a waste of our resources.
Hope it helps!
A great way of working together with translators on a text is the Google Translator Toolkit: http://translate.google.com/toolkit?hl=en
For example, check out this English page:
Then check the Spanish page:
And then go to
and search for the Amortización Calculadora Calendario and we come up as #1 (at least for me checking right now).
We used G translator to translate the page. But let me add this. Since I don't know Spanish, I translated the page from English to Spanish to Danish and back to English. I kept tweaking the English so that when the translation cycle was completed, I ended up with the same English as what I started with. This took added time, and might not have been worth the effort. But it was educational!
By the way, it only took about two weeks for the Spanish pages to show up in the Google.es index.
So, now you have two opposite experiences. Isn't life grand?
If you want a foreign language site that actually produces the goods, you have to bite the bullet, and get your content professionally translated. You'd also better be prepared to hire someone who can service your foreign-language enquiries...
Certainly all true. But on the other hand, the translation seems to work just fine for pages that depend on AdSense revenue.
Also, I would note that at the bottom of each or our translated pages there is a note that states the page was created using Google translator, and if anyone cared to suggest any corrections to email the webmaster. I know it's not too likely many people would bother to do this, but on the other hand, we've had no suggested changes at all.
For us, it was a useful experiment. But I doubt if it will ever be financially rewarding.
Now, I just wish I had been smart enough to give the web developer the instructions to save the Danish translated text too. ;-)
