Are you using Google translation or Yahoo translation?
I say this because I see no other reason for it.
For how long have you both been translating your pages?
Just want to see if the penalty might take some time to materialise.
I had a problem last year where my translated pages were deindex, but it didn't affect the rest of my site. I moved the translated pages and the problem did not re-appear. It also didn't affect my PageRank.
What about adsense
Adsense ToS says one has to give preference of the language while setting up the account
Would the adsense account affected, since my english sites pay well, so if i set up 40 language translation i m quite sure i can increase the revenue and seeing the traffic coming to those sites from european countries i want to add this option, but not quite sure about the ToS as such
The AdSense accounts gets reviewed frequently and the AdSense department has never complained about the translations.
I've just bought and installed an excellent little translation script. Works like a charm :)
Only problem is the URL of the translated page is not very SEO friendly, but I've contacted the developer and he has advised me that he is working on an upgrade that should fix this.
The script can be found here: Incansoft Translator V3.0
It's only $19.95 normally, and I've also located a coupon for 50% off. Just enter code AWESOME before you add it to the cart. :punk:
