Since 2010 we knew that using Google Translate or other automatic machine translation services to convert content from one language to another and to rank it in Google was against Google's guidelines. But recently some are saying with Google Translate getting much better, it has been harder for Google to discover what is machine vs human translated. One SEO brought up the issue in a hangout with John Mueller last month at the 48:01 mark and John from Google responded saying it is possible that Google isn't able to figure out some cases. He said even more so, it isn't about web sites doing this with good intent but those that use auto-translate service to spin and auto-generate content for spam purposes.Here is the question:I'm seeing a lot of websites with auto generated content being ranking with domain name extensions which are very weird and very new.

Today I start from basics of blogging, like what is a Blog, what is blogging and who is a blogger? If we extend the word Blog then the full form is (A place on the Internet where we express our thoughts and we can also call it “Weblog”). Some internet users call it with different names like – A Digital Magazine, A Diary, Newscast, Collector’s meeting place, place to show your art, information sharing place, teaching hub, learning spot and if I have to call it in my words then it would be “A place where almost everything can happen by words.” A regular blog merge with text, images, videos and links, and many more elements and the blog readers can post queries, comments and their thoughts as well as feedback’s about your posts and communicate with the author.

It’s a common issue; you search for something on Google and click on a website, only to leave once you immediately discover it’s not in your language.

When you write your blog posts, what language do you write them in? Chances are that you write them in English. What if I told you that you would get more traffic if you wrote your blog posts in Mandarin and Spanish as they are the two most popular languages in the world? I thought it would be a good experiment to translate NeilPatel.com into 82 different languages. Within three weeks of doing this, I saw a 47% increase in my search traffic—as you can see from the image above.

The marketers for an Internet gourmet foods company decide that they are going to begin selling in Mexico. They're excited because they have already have labels on the packages in both Spanish and English, so they don't need to retool any packaging. Also, it's not that expensive to ship the products to Mexico and the existing e-Commerce system can handle pages written in Spanish and show prices in Mexican pesos.
