    translation benefits

    Will, how much traffic/revenue does this add and what main languages people use?

    Any setbacks of using this on your sites?

    Here's a traffic chart I made a few months ago:



    And here's the corresponding AdSense revenue chart:



    But, and this is a big but, Google has recently removed my translated pages from the SERPS for a number of my sites -- but not all of my sites.

    How and why and what to do about that is currently unresolved. I think that v3 of the translation script will provide a solution, but it has not yet been completed.

    I have not found any, except for the hassle of setting it up and maintaining it. This isn't one of those nice little set-and-forget type scripts.

    On the other hand, it was making me $300/day before the current issue with Google arose, and it's still making me $40/day now.

    If you are not using the Translation Script now, I would recommend waiting for v3. If you are using the Translation Script now, I recommend upgrading to 2.14.

    thanks, looks cool. Interesting that Russian brings most of the revenue, I thought that should've been after spanish, german and french. Maybe its also about the competition in google serps.

    I've never used it but considering to. When do you expect v3 to be out?

    The colors are too close, that's actually Italian.

    And if you're using wordpress you can easily setup a plugin called Global-Translator
    Does a marvellous job.

    BTW - WILL, how do you know all those things about your adsense account? What soft are you using?

    Just the regular Google AdSense portal with URL channels, but then I export data to CSV and import it into the Open Office Spreadsheet.

    And you have channels for every language? Per site? There's only 200 of them...

    BTW... have you used CSV Adstats?

    Only for my big sites.

    Google recently bumped the number of channels to 500.

    Not yet, but I'm a stats addict, so it will probably happen in the future.

    Right now I'm playing with data from the AdSense+Analytics integration.

    Which works pretty badly so far for me... but let's keep this on topic.
