Non-English sites and Adsense?
Non-English sites and Adsense

Msg#: 9818 posted 10:46 am on Oct 7, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have 2 non-english sites and each one have over 10k unique visitors per day and 150-200k hits per day, and I don't get profit out of it.

So I joined Adsense and test it on one site, and it almost always shows PSAs. And i earn nothing.

What can I do? Any tips? Is it possible to earn on adsense on non-english websites? tnx

Sure it's possible ..depends on the language ..in french "g" delivers some slightly weird ads sometimes ..the filter code appears to have been written by someone who uses a translator like babel fish to tell them what it thinks the text is actually talkng about ..but that can happen on english language sites ..may also depend where you are veiwing from ..
I saw some stuff the other day on EFV 's place that I'm sure he wouldn't have expected ..but I'm looking from France ..

If it's possible, you can translate some good part of your site content into English. Maybe it helps.

I was thinking of putting altavista's babel fish on my site to translate into other languages. How would this work with Adsense...is it allowed? Fraknly, I'm not that concerned about getting revenue from the translation, I just want my content to be as widely available as possible.

hm... my sites are in Bosnian language, so it's very difficult to translate or something...

I have the same problem. My friend and I just launched a english-bosnian online dictionary and same problem. Google isnt displaying anything but public ads. Even though it's a dictionary and there are lot of english words being displayed it's still stuck on public ads.

What I am going to try to do, but I'm pretty sure I read something about that being prohibited or something. To let's say your background color is white, so you add english keywords and make the letters white so you actually cant see that part of the page, or put a very small font or something.

Is that allowed?
