    Is it right to get backlinks to a site with a foreign prefix,
    and a foreign Language, from .com sites like ezine etc ?
    How Google treats links between foreign sites ?

    As far as I'm concerned, the issue isn't so much the TLD (i.e. .com, .net, .co.uk, etc) but rather whether the page the link appears on is contextually relevant to the content of the page that is being linked to.

    but my sites are not in english they are written in foreign Language
    so how they can be relevant,
    to the content of the page that is being linked to.
    does google bot translate the content ?

    thanks

    I cannot say for certain, but I think it is safe to say that links from sites that are in different languages, with the exception of sites that are actually ABOUT LANGUAGE, will not give you much of a boost. That said, you should experiment and find out.

    Any update or findings Arik?

    I find myself in a position where I have a client
    with French speaking sites, so I'm wondering the
    same thing right now.

    Cheers,
