SEO Content Machine can download content in foreign languages.
Foreign content can be obtained from 2 sources:
- Custom sites (via Bing/BingCache/Google/Custom Search Engine)
- Google search results in your Country
The article creator can also load articles in any language from text files on your computer.
SCM does not come configured with a foreign language spinner. You will need to purchase one such as X-Spinner etc
Custom sites (via Bing/BingCache/Google/CSE)
SCM can download and scrape content from Bing/BingCache/Google/CSE for any language result.
There is the usual limit of 50 results per keyword if you use Bing.
It is important to remember that BING may not have indexed the sites you are trying to scrape content for.
You may try Google or a Custom Search Engine for better results.
How to add a new custom site
Add your custom site via the [Edit Custom Sites] button in the article creator.
You can also add new custom sites in the Article Downloader via the same grid.
Click on the “Edit Custom Site” button in the article creator to begin.
Click on “+” button to add a site that contains usable articles
Eg Spanish | www.articuloz.com
This will tell SCM to look up that site for content. If you use a Spanish article directory, it will find and scrape Spanish content.
Selecting the Search Engine is important. Google gives more results, but you need to load proxies or risk getting banned.
Custom Search Engines allows you to visit any page directly and scrape all the links on that page for content.
Click [Save] once you are finished.
Don’t forget to select the custom source.
Recommended sites to use
You should use sites that have lots of usable content on them.
- News sites
- Review sites
- Article directory sites
Advanced Xpath configuration
The scraper engine in SCM is able to auto-detect content on a page and extract it automatically.
Sometimes this fails, or it extracts the wrong bits of content.
You can override this by using the exact Xpath to the content you want to scrape on a page.
Xpath configuration is an advanced topic.
For 99% of users you don’t need to adjust or configure a custom Xpath.
Choosing correct Google region
The article creator (and the article downloader) can query Google for content.
Select the Google search region from the drop down list.
Selecting a region in your language will return results in that language.
Difference between Google And Custom sites
Your search keywords are passed to the search engines like this.
via Custom site
http:/bing.com inurl: customsiteexample.com my keyword
via Custom Search Engine
Tip: You can use search operators for keywords too:
Eg: my keyword -not this keyword
You can use both Google and Custom sites
This allows you to scrape more content than just using one or the other.
My Google region/language isn’t there
Send support an email to add your Google region.
