Unfortunately, websites still don't get any visitors from Google. I'm working on it.
Any monetary results so far?
Duplicate content in a different language? Hmm
UPDATE: Guys, I know I haven't update this journey for a long time but I must say there's nothing new in this project. Websites don't get more than 30-40 unique visitors per day. I think the articles I've translated are just useless. Next time I'll try to find a better source and won't hassle with daily updates, I'll just dump all the data at once. This thread can be closed. Thanks for following. This thread proved that it's not an easy task to dominate big G or milk adsense.
Thanks for the update mate!
I have been following this case study and have to say, its such a pity to see there is no exciting result from your experiment, I told several times have done same thing 2 years ago with same health niche blog but with expired domain content, similar results as you, maybe health niche is really saturated as we can tell.
I would suggest leave your site as it, and back to see it 1 year later, maybe some miracles will happen?
Anyway, good job and looking forward your next case.
Could you check your blog with Ahrefs? I wonder the keywords it is ranking for. I guess that you are ranking for several long tail keywords. If you ranked for long tail keywords, this shows that it has great potential. But you can't expect to dominate using translated content without backlinks in a competitive niche.
If you don't have access to Ahrefs, you can send me your URL. I am really interested to see ranking for long tail keywords.
How is this journey going? It seems really interesting.
i have got interested in the beginning but sad in the end i really hoped that would succeed man
best of luck following you in the future
You should see the upper post by Op ... Looks like the JOURNEY is dead .
Sounded like an interesting adventure! Looking for future adventures soon!
Auto-translated method is not working?
Hey man, 3 years later, any update on the site?
Also, you should focus on keywords/topics your blog is targeting.
Like, it's a lot easier if you translate the whole articles after spinning them, then optimize the articles for search engines.
I want to do something similar with content like that from, say german to english, then optimize the articles.
I have an update for this 2 months ago I've built a website, one article is focused on most searched keyword from last year in the country I live. No backlinks, no nothing, it ranks top 10 currently, not so many visits, but I guess it's because the current virus thing, people don't search so much on this subject.
Forgot to mention: translated from English.
Sites for up for 1 year, had 3-5 visits daily and visits were from non-English countries.
This journey failed because the English health niche is already very saturated imho.
New approach would be spinning the English articles first, then translate it to another language but NEVER use google translate.
What I believe is, once you use google translate, that text gets into their database and google use that database to determine duplicated content on websites somehow.
We have no proof about it but think like google; this data would be gold mine for them to make correct decision about website SERPs.
That's funny how this old thread showed up right on time. I've started to test the same thing 2 weeks ago, translating with google translate from one language to another and as I can see it's working.
There are lots of factors...
Your site is in English?
Spinned before translation?
Any manual editing?
How many posts?
Did you dump all the post all in once or scheduled?
Fresh or aged domain?
Yep, you are right, but I think that Google doesn't keep any translation DB, it's kinda unreal, just imagine how many people use it every day.
Nope, it's not English.
Not spinned, just copy-paste into google translate.
Yep, some manual editing, I'm fluent in those 2 languages, google can't translate perfectly, just proofreading actually.
10 post every day, it's about 150 right now.
I used wp content crawler, parsed about 700 articles, plugin saved everything as drafts.
Kinda amazon affiliate reviews website, but we have our own "amazon" in my country.
Oh and I've tried to use some translation API to get rid of manual translating, but can't find a good one, you need to pay a lot if you use google translate api, coz each article has about 3-4k words. I found some free translation APIs but it's limited or has a really bad translation quality.
Well this works for you because:
1- You translate English to Non-English
2- You do manual editing
This journey's aim was never doing any manual editing so everything could work in %100 auto pilot.
What I believe is Google does this at least in English. As you can see, since they applied AI learning to their translator (must be around 2015, not really sure), the translations has improved amazingly and the translation quality is best in English so far because there are TONS of English content and Google's main language is English (obviously).
I'm from Turkey and Turkish WWW is not as saturated as English. It's not all about content language for sure. There is of course correlation between ranking difficulty and the amount of money companies spend for SEO + niche. I can still easily rank English to Turkish translated content on auto pilot and I can say the result content is totally gibberish. I believe, there are 2 factors why I can still rank gibberish Turkish content:
1- Turkish WWW is not saturated as English WWW.
2- Google doesn't understand Turkish well as it does English.
this seems like a good idea if you find authority websites in languages other than english,
OP is this what you attempted?
after so long, care to say the niche
