Attract non-English traffic to English language sites

I have previously published adding site translator to blogs (and normal websites as well) at Add translator to your blog (or website) (click BACK button to get back to this page). One reader also wants to know if she publish a blog in English, how can she attract non-English visitors. The only thing I can think of is to ping non-English as well as English servers each time the blogger creates a new post or updates an old one.

My favorite is Pingoat which includes non-English services. See screenshot below:

Amazon products on SEO (increase visitors)

Unfortunately, for the past few weeks, I have got the error message "Warning: mysql_connect(): Too many connections in /var/www/ on line 34. Too many connections." I have contacted Pingoat about the problem and now waiting for a response from them. When I get that problem I have to resort to Ping-O-Matic. However, as you can see from the screenshot below:


they do not include as many services as Pingoat and they don't ping non-English servers. That is unfortunate as they were the first to start this pinging service. I think I will contact them and suggest they add that to their list

There is one more pinging service and that is Blogflux Pinger. This one include non-English blog pinging services as you can see below:

Blogflux Pinger

Unfortunately, my screen is not big enough to display the other non-English services. You can just see "Japanese" at the bottom of the screenshot. The other non-English service that is not shown is Spanish. It seem to be faster than Pingoat and Ping-O-Matic, but there is no provision to include the feed URL for your blog. I will have to think about which one may be better, Ping-O-Matic or Blogflux Pinger.

There are many other pinging services I have yet to check. When I find the time, I will either update this post or more likely post about a different aspect of pinging to include those pinging services.


  1. I'm having the same problem with pingoat here. It's been on and off for about 2 weeks.
    Too bad too, I really liked them.

  2. Hi Sabre,

    I too am having problems with pingoat.

    Refer to Attract non-English traffic to English language sites. You can find alternatives there.
