In response to a Tweet, Google’s John Mueller made a very relevant point when it comes to receiving links from non-English language websites.
The question to John asked: “I received some dofollow links from some non english websites. My sites priamary (primary) language is english. Have no idea how they got to find my stuff and link to it.. Should i be bothered about those links.. They have a neat link profile”
John then pointed out the following:
Just because a website is not in English doesn’t mean it’s spam, or that links from it are bad.
Highlighting the point that backlinks should be judged on their individual merit, rather than the country of origin of the site that they came from.
