Global translator wordpress plugin helps you to translate your blog into multiple language. Though in my previous post I talked about what problem I faced with Global translator plugin.
As it is in the previous post I talked about how Global translator plugin violates Google translation API TOS.
Another story here is Global translator plugin violates Google adsense TOS as well.
How Global translator plugin Violates Google adsense terms and conditions?
If you look at the supported language page, you will find that adsense doesn’t support every language.
You can see the list of adsense supported language here.
Scroll down to the end of page and you will see these lines :
Please also be aware that placing the AdSense code on pages with content primarily in an unsupported language is not permitted by the AdSense program policies.
So you are stuck in a condition where your adsense account might get banned.
To get rid of this issue, one simple thing you can do is to disable the languages in the Global translator plugin setting page, which Google adsense doesn’t support.
Though after disabling those language, your blog will encounter lots of 404 error.
Remove all those pages from specified languages which violates Adsense policies.
Use your Google webmaster tool to remove those links using directory removal method.
Now edit your robots.txt file to make sure Google bot will not reindex those pages.
In my case I have manually removed all the pages which are indexed from shoutmeloud in different languages, using Google webmaster tool.
You can also check I have edited my robots.txt file to disallow bots for those multi-language page.
Though it might take a week or two to see the complete changes on my blog index.
For now I will not recommend using this plugin for a while till the time we will have complete solution to the Global translator problem.
These are the major problems which I faced with Global translator plugin :
- Duplicate issues
- Violation of Google translator API TOS
- Violation of Google adsense TOS
- Webhost instability
I loved this plugin at the first instance when I was getting lots of traffic from different part of the Globe, which I never thought of. But after all this fiasco and issue with Global translator plugin I will play safe and before making any change on my blog I will do a complete research.
