An Awesome Idea To Get More Traffic to Your Sites and Blogs

Updated on November 14, 2012

Some of you may have read my How To Increase Traffic To Your Site Or Blog written earlier. This article may be considered as an addendum to that.

I have been getting considerable traffic from non-English domains and sites, mainly from non-English Google searches from all over the world and foreign language bookmarking sites. I have successfully generated traffic from Italian, Spanish, French, German, Dutch, Portuguese, and many other foreign language domains. This is what prompted me to suggest the installation of a 'Translate This Page' button or widget here at HubPages.

Earlier last month Google indexed one of my hubs and then later decided to de-index it. For more than two weeks there was no traffic from Google for this page after getting solid hits from the search engine soon after publishing it. Since then they have re-indexed that hub and traffic from Google has picked up again. I believe one of the reasons that may have acted in my favor is the traffic and back links I got from non-English sites during that lull period.

According to the World Internet Statistics, only around 30% internet users are English. So, there are nearly 70% of the traffic to aim for!. Please refer to the screenshot below.

How To Get Traffic From Non-English Sites

One of the reason I wanted the 'translate this page' button is that, not all foreign language visitors will be able to comprehend what is on a strictly English site and they may never return again. Or they will have to use their own tool to translate the pages. Although there are a lot of free online translation tools available I rely on Google Translate.

As Mark Indicated, there is also a lighter side of online automatic translations with which you can entertain yourself at Lost In Translation.

Ok. Here is how I do it.

With Google Translate you can translate most major languages somewhat effectively. Using this tool I translate the title and text for the article into the language I want. I copy these and head over to the foreign language bookmarking sites of my choice. Once again I use the Google Translate tool to convert their pages to English. Now you can easily use that site just like any other English bookmarking sites and hope to get some traffic from them. Anyway you are getting a free backlink from a foreign language site! Don't forget that most of these foreign language sites have high PR as well.

For your reference below is the biggest list of working non-English bookmarking sites that you can use to get some high traffic. I am sure in the coming years there will be more and more language specific services on the net, and I will have keep on updating this list. But always remember not to break the golden rule of social bookmarking sites. DON'T SPAM!

      I can deal with the Portuguese, Spanish, French and Italian sites but cannot figure out how to bookmark in Japanese, Chinese, or Russian. Do you have any clues? Do you bookmark on any pages in those languages that are easy to use? Thank you for any help you can give me!

      I really appreciate this idea. Hubpages has never included a widget to translate our pages? I asked this on the forum last week but received no reply.
