    WordPress Slug and Blog Titles: Italian and English (Advice?)

    I was thinking about wordpress slug of posts. I want to monetize my blog.. and I was thinking: "If I use english slug and italian titles? Could I draw more users (italian ones and english ones) on my blog, then have more possibilities to make money with my blog?". But I know there's something wrong with this, I feel it.. but I don't know what it is. This is becouse I'm writing this post.

    Example:

    Code HTML4Strict:
    Italian: [url]http://www.myblog.com/category/come-fare-soldi-con-il-proprio-blog[/url]
    English: [url]http://www.myblog.com/category/how-yo-make-money-with-blog[/url]

    I don't really get what you are saying? Do you mean to have one post in English, and another post in Italian? I don't see anything wrong with that as long as you keep both in 2 separate sections so that the frontpage doesn't show double posts. Your users would not like that.

    No, I was mean..

    When you write a new post, on WP, you have the 'Slug' option, to the right. If there you write "hey, check this post", then your blog post will have this url: http://yourblog.com/category/hey-check-this-post. Now, I would try to set there the english title, and on my normal title field the italian one.

    Example:

    Title: questo è il mio titolo (italian language)
    Message: il mio contenuto (italian language)
    Slug: this is my title (english language)

    But your main post is in Italian? If so why would an English only reader want to come?

    Sounds like a novel approach, but I'm not sure if it would work or not. I don't pay much attention to the slugs. I have a hard enough time with what I do now, lol.

    Yes, main posts will be in italian. I want english reader becouse I will try to monetize my blog, then they will be potential ads clickers. This is the idea. I have posted here becouse I would like to have some advice about this.

    Some plugins add an abbreviation to the language e.g.

    http://yourblog.com/it/title
    and for the english http://yourblog.com/title

    The it is for the italian plage.
