    I have seen several thread talking about translation and the benifit of adding pages to your site as a result. However none gave any links or resource. So after a little hunt I came across the following plugin.

    Code:
    http://www.nothing2hide.net/wp-plugins/wordpress-global-translator-plugin/
    I have installed is on 2 of my blogs and as a result have 2000% more pages of unique content. (for those that can't do the maths... if your site has 10 pages and you translate to 20 languages, that give you 210 pages = 2000% increase :) )
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 4

    had this plugin installed for a while and the translated pages are now good indexed by google and a lot of traffic is coming in from other countries (about 70% of my traffic comes now from non-english speaking countries). but in my case, it does not convert very well.

    thats the problem, its just stat padding traffic unless youre geo targeting offers from your site.

    I would agree, however I think the best types of sites to use this for would be MFA sites. As the user will still be presented with relevant ads from g00g!e.

    One draw back I have already noticed is that you need to limit your translation rate...... ie you can only translate pages at a limited speed, therefore if you already have 1000+ english pages, then it could take hell of a long time to translate the whole site, without getting flagged by the translation services and banned! This is all explained in the options setting for the plugin.

    One thing about this plugin that rocks is that it integrates into the xmlsitemaps plugin. just make sure you checkmark that...
