    Hi guys,

    I need some help for SEO because I am really confuse and I dont know what to do.

    I have a small company located in Canada and many of my clients speak French so they only have a website, content and keywords in French they do not have a website in English.

    I was expecting to offer my clients some SEO services and outsource it in India or something like this but I was wondering if they will be able to do the work since it?s not in English. Do I need to outsource it to someone or somewhere, where they speak French? Will the results be the same as if it was English content?

    Do they need to understand the language they are working on perfectly or Google translate will work for this kind of job? If they submit some articles for the SEO campaign will it need to be in a Canadian directory? With an article in French with the French anchor or they can submit an English article with a French anchor on it? Will I need to hire a French Copywriter and My India SEO team? Or I need to hire somewhere else?

    I am not sure how I can outsource my Online Marketing / SEO work in India if my work need to be in French. Because I need the work to be 100% white-hat and I cannot afford to get my clients website penalized either.

    I would need some advice from people that have experienced Outsourcing SEO for a Foreign Language.

    Thank You. ;)

    Ok 1st get that "whitehat" out of your head, there's no such thing...

    Now onto your questions
    -You can get some french VAs for a good price check google or you gonna need an english spoken VA and a translator
    -Submit french articles and do all the link building in french
    -Get yourself some english articles and have them translated
    -Google translate is a no no for me (it's really bad trust me your articles will not make sense)
    -Get your customers registered on canadian directories (for real this you can do yourself it's mostly cut and past filling out forms there are browser plugins that do that)
    -I bet you a lot of them don't have their Onpage on point, fix that and they'll most likely rank higher (do that yourself)
    -Built PBNs I can't stress that enough

    IMHO if you are not ready to do most of the work yourself stick to the english customer (I assume you have some already) it's definitely something you don't want to outsource unless you can afford to pay big bucks for good french VA, it's all about the demand right. Anyway good luck and hopefully someone else will chime in

    By the way you're in MTL, QC city?

    I am not sure what you guys mean ... There is black-hat SEO and White Hat SEO isnt'it ?

    I am looking for natural link, no spam with software etc..



    Thank you for your reply, I really appreciate it !

    I am indeed located in Montreal, QC. My native language is French, so you can PM me in French if you want to. And most of my customers are french, I dont have any potential SEO clients for the english market they are all French website for now.

    I can do the onpage SEO myself and I can manage to register my customer on canadian directory but I am looking to outsource the rest (article writing and submission and link-building).

    For the PBNs I heard it's a very long and costly process, so I am not sure about this I know i can do this myself since I have no experience in PBNs and I dont have the time to do it either.

    But would it work if they submit english articles with french anchor ? Do they also need to submit only to french-canadian website ?

    Thanks

    Try to do searching French people to hire for the SEO project.

    But.... if you don't know how to do it. You are at your own risk or you withdraw from the SEO project.

    Because for SEO service, you must sure to know how to do it.

    I will try to reformulate my question :


    When I do SEO for a French-Canadian Customer / Website do I need to do my link building on a French-Canadian website ? Or can I do it on a English-American website ?


    When I write, create my anchor text/link and submit my article do I need to write it in French with a French Anchor and submit it to a French-canadian website / directory ? Or can I write my article in English with a French Anchor and submit it to a English-American website / directory ?


    That's all I need to know.


    Thank You guys.

    There's no such thing as "white hat" SEO the minute you build a link you go against google practices. I know what you mean it's just gotta start with the proper lingo here lol

    PBN don't have to be super costly check out this thread by Nick Flame : http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-build-your-own-pbn-under-275-15-domains.html
    Gotta spend money to make money mon ami
    Another advantage for building a PBN is a customer doesn't pay, remove the link since you own the PBN.

    Don't submit english articles with french anchors, that screams SPAM
    You don't need to submit to french-canadian website only, submit to relevant sites that accept french content. That's why it's good to analyse comp. first and see where they're getting their links from to better assess the work that needs to be done.
    Let's say if you do blog commenting, forum postings you can use english forums or english sites to do because the comments are usually short and you would use the site name as anchor but if you want to use keyword anchors then use french content only

    I think in your case it's better to do a JV/find a partner, from what I gather you have no problems finding customers which is usually the hard part, to do the SEO for you. Outsourcing it the proper way will be costly in another language other than english. Myself I get my sister and cousin (who's a translator) they both live in MTL do the translation for me but I do my own SEO.

    I'm french and I run a real SEM business.
    Just to be clear, don't outsource your content to India.
    Be prepared to spend more for French customers than for English ones. French content is not cheap...

    Stop saying you are white hat and saying you will do linking; linking => maniapulation for GG => Black Hat .
