    There are hundreds of languages out there and Google most likely doesn't recognize all of them. Therefore, if you post structured jibberish, wouldn't Google assume that it's a language it doesn't recognize?

    That it got me thinking: Could you take a shortcut to build a number of sites using jibberish articles instead of writing/spinning articles that make sense in English?

    Google knows pretty much every language out there... It's not like they see gibberish and think "Sounds like nonsense, but its probably a legitimate language"

    Exactly. There's a very finite number of languages and I'm sure Google can distinguish between them.

    The number of languages is certainly finite, but that doesn't mean Google knows all of them.

    A quick search reveals that there are currently about 6700 active spoken languages in the world. (Granted, not all of them are spoken by people outside of tribes, and not all of them are written languages, but there are still hundreds if not thousands of written languages.)

    Also, it's worth mentioning that a lot of languages with non-latin writing (e.g. chinese, japanese, persian, arabic, hindi, urdu) are commonly written using latin transliteration. e.g. for a persian speaker to write in native persian, he needs a persian-enabled keyboard layout, right-to-left writing support in the OS, browser, editor, and unicode support in everything as well. Because they can't always find that perfect combination, sometimes they just sound it out using english letters. Because there is no standard for this, there is no official spelling either, so anything goes.

    Therefore, I seriously doubt that Google can claim to understand all written languages in the world. The question is, what does it do when it encounters something it doesn't understand?

    Give it a try and let us know how it goes :)

    I seriously doubt Google will consider it as an unknown language, but who knows..

    Ok, lets assume that it will stick in google's index. What is worth for you?

    I've seen plenty of sites that have a backlink profile in which some of the backlink pages are not in English (except for the anchor text).

    Hmm, remember sape links? They were are on russian websites. Google, from what I can understand, has a hard time figuring out russian. Which is why at first sape links were great but then once Google finds out. BANG and your rankings are gone.

    I am not sure it will work with all search engines but you should definitely try it with chinese. Since they have their own search engine.


    ps I speak persian fluently and if I came across it and couldn't read it, I would leave. Wouldn't this change how google sees what is good content and bad content? By looking at the bounce rate?


    My point is, this might actually work, but for how long?

    What do you mean by "once google finds out".. How can they learn your made-up language?

    I just used persian as an example, as I know persians that write in what they call "penglish", and I'm sure speakers of many other languages do the same. My point was that google would potentially have a really hard time determining whether or not a given piece of text is part of a real language or a made-up one.

    What you say about bounce rate makes sense though. Although, google doesn't know the bounce rate of everything, and anyway do people actually read spun articles? For human readers, if you really need to reduce bounce rate/increase time on page, just add some boobs ;P

    you seriously underestimate big G. They, more than most, have a vested interest in natural language processing, and I'm sure distinguishing between existing languages and pure jibberish is trivial to them. Even if you stumbled upon a tribesman language that Google has indeed never before encountered, why in the world would they give any kind of value to pages composed such a language, when it can't even match the basic precedents set by the trillions of pages Google has already crawled in tens of languages? Interesting thought, but it would be a shocking case study if you could go anywhere with such a site.

    Assuming this works, basically you would score high SERPs for any given gibberish search?

    Well not for scoring high in SERPs in jibberish, but you can maybe use it for backlinks to English pages, with the right anchor text.

    Anyway, it was just an idea, I was just interested in hearing what you guys thought about it. I guess most people don't think it would work.

    There are 6,809 living languages listed. Of these, 6,000 have registered population figures. 52% of the 6,000 languages are spoken by less than 10,000 people, and 28% are spoken by less than 1,000 people. 83% of them are limited to single countries.
    European countries languages, although largely stemming from three different roots (german, latin and slavic), are quite similar in how they work semantically.
    problems Google may have are related to not European languages, like chinese, japanes or arabic, which are completely different in how they are conceived
    In Feb 2002, Klingon became one of Google's 72 language interfaces
    My take, while not an expert take ;-), is that if they cannot recognize the language it will rank very low or not at all and I am confused by what a non ranking page or a low rank page will gain you in the long run?
    Also if they discover it is garbage (jibberish) don't you think they will all magically disappear in a puff of Google smoke?
