SEO Benefits of Translator Plugin Pro / Gold For Your WordPress BlogBy Angsuman Chakraborty, Gaea News Network

Angsuman’s Translator Plugin Pro and Translator Plugin Gold offer tremendous SEO advantage ethically to your blog by instantly providing 8 times the original number of pages. These pages are indistinguisable to search engines and are treated as any other pages of your blog. ptvguy from WordPress forums has provided a crystal clear explanation of the SEO benefits for your blog:
Since angsuman didn’t spell this out for those unfamiliar with Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques, I will. The more original content your site has, the more value there is assigned to it by a search engine (as long as it’s not duplicated content–which has the opposite effect.) This leads to higher PageRank.
Multiple translations of the exact same content represents the only acceptable way (that I know of) to get around these rules against content duplication. Not only is it not looked down upon, it’s actually seen as a valid service. If your current PageRank is at all close to the line of going up, this could be what pushes it over the hump.
Thanks for the clear explanations.
