    Hi there

    Im an English SEO who's been asked to build links for a german client on a .de TLD.

    The only problem is i dont speak German.

    Anyone got any tips for building links for foreign language domains?

    I can get content written in german if that helps, my issue is with finding target sites.

    thanks

    i wouldn't use google translate... german grammar is very difficult, if you use translate all germans will know that you used it...
    i'm from germany so i know what i'm talking about!

    Germans hate to give other people backlinks.

    Most webmasters believe that everytime they give somebody a link they loose pagerank.

    Also you don´t find easily autoaprove for german sites because people there (here :) ) hate spam!

    German grammar is hard and germans hate if somebody don´t use their grammar. So have fun with google translate ....

    For a forumprofile there should no difference between german or english...

    You know that there are various options of SEO. If you want to do the articles submission in different directories then you can use Google translator for transforming English to German.

    I'm also looking forward if some true expert can shed some light.

    That said, why don't you guys just write english articles and place the keyword in brackets?

    I.e This flower (germanwordforfloweranchored) is black. :eek:mfg:

    Don't use Google translate or similar to translate your texts. Have some good content written by a native speaker - you can try oDesk or similar or some content service like textbroker .de.

    In my experience links to German sites that are embedded in English texts don't work that well. So a bit of German content is a must have. You don't need to put the backlinks on German sites, though... the actual language of the site does not matter as long as your link phrase (and of course the keyword) is in German.
