Global Translator WordPress Plugin
The global translator is like the new employee with an amazing CV but does nothing. I am sure when we installed Global Translator we thought about the perks and got excited. What we didn’t think about is the utter chaos it creates in our pages. Also, because we believe in keeping our readers aware of all the negatives and positives of plugins; today we will talk about how Global Translator WordPress Plugin creates problems in SEO!
Google translator is a WordPress plugin which translates the text of the page into various languages. Therefore, increasing traffic from various linguistics and countries. When everything about this plugin seems so easy and smooth, where do you think the problem lies?
Let’s start from the very first thing that comes to our mind when using this plugin. Just when we thought that Global Translator will increase the traffic on our website, it ditches you. Traffic from Global Translator changes your position in search engines. Some pages are shown at the top and some at the bottom. Hence, confusing you and keeping the traffic constant.
Because the same page gets translated into other languages, it creates duplicate issues for your website. Therefore, Google might penalize you in terms of either PR; slow indexing or no indexing of web page.
Violation of Google AdSense TOS-
AdSense doesn’t support all the languages that are available through Global Translator. Which is why a lot of problems come our way. AdSense account might get banned for your page or website. For this, you could disable the languages that AdSense doesn’t support. Yet, you cannot, because this way your blog will encounter lots of 404 errors.
Global Translator WordPress Plugin keeps on creating separate folders in your directory for different words while translation. And in case you do not have unlimited web space hosting, you will have lack of space and other issues to follow up on.
Other than these, there are some other problems that occur as well-
-Lots of errors occur in Google Webmaster Tools.
-Server Load increases. Quick solution; DreamHost.
-Translation of new pages does not happen automatically. You will have to do it and it is extremely time-consuming.
Now, what to do?
Uninstall Global Translator and wait for us to look for solutions for the above problems. Till then, happy reading.
