I just realized that it would be somewhat easy to get links from relevant sites that are in a foreign language to my English language site.
Would those links have much value?
To make an analogy: suppose you have a site in English about pizza making, and you were able to get links from Italian language sites that were related to things like Italian cuisine, flour, food safety, spaghetti and the like.
Would those help an English language site rank in google.com?
Thanks in advance.
(note: It would be much more difficult for my competitors to get such types of links, since they don't speak that foreign language.)
