It seems that Google have temporarily blocked your server IP address.

It can happen if your website is hosted on a shared server with shared IP address and one of the websites hosted on the same server is sending many page rank or other requests. Or if you have cleared gtranslate/cache folder or decreased the cache time manually, which led to higher translation traffic.

For now you have 2 options:
1. Ask your hosting company to change your IP address.
2. In .htaccess file add # before every line for # gtranslate config block and use the free translator for 10 days until Google will unblock your IP address.

You need to go with one of the options in my previous post.

That i did understood. The problem is my client does not agree with that. So i was wondering if that solution worked and how many days it took to lift the google block?

Usually it takes about 10 days in case you don't do any request during that period. So you need to turn off the Pro version redirects from .htaccess file and use the free version.

Hi,

I have the same problem with 302 error in www.kalliergo.gr.
I followed your advice about disabling Pro mode and modifying .htaccess.
Now is working again but in normal mode.

Changing site's IP address, in most cases is not practically possible.
Also, keeping thousands of cache files is also not practical.
I have personally established a cron job to delete GTranslate's cache files every day.
I did that, because at some point the number of cache files was so big that the system could not delete theme with a simple rm *.

I believe that this situation should be mentioned before purchasing the Pro version.
It is a situation that sooner or later a user of GTranslate Pro will face.

If you delete cache files every day, you will get a ban again for high translation traffic.

You can read this post about enabling cache self clearing.

it took more then 10 days, but my ban is removed from google translate

it is not enoutgh to not using redirect mode, also you're sitemap must not contain any links like www.youdomain.com/en/

Good to hear that. If you disable it from .htaccess then sitemap can stay intact.

I have the same issue so i used the option 2. I also chnaged it to FREE version and in Parameters, i set it to work with On Fly (jQuery)

Please let me know if i am doing anything wrong here.

My questions are : What will happen to all indexed URLs of my site
When can i again start using the PRO version?
If i can never use the PRO version what's the point of buying the PRO version?

Make sure to disable it from .htaccess

You need to wait about 10 days.

Indexed pages will stay as is until the search engine will decide to remove them. After re-enabling Pro it will start indexing again.

If you can never use the Pro version there is no point of buying it.

Once the pages are cached it will not happen. When you have a big website and install Pro on it, that can happen, since all the pages are pulled from the translator server. After you have the cached files you don't need to worry.

I'm working on a new version which will show the default language instead of the error when your site has exceeded the limits.

If your site is not being updated frequently, you can increase the cache time.

I am having this same problem. I did what was suggested: added # to the lines in my htaccess file and turned off Pro version, so now I am running on free version.

My question is do I need to also remove all of the subdomains in my site map as the previous poster suggested? If I do this further step, will Google stop indexing my site with all of the translated pages? I bought the pro version mainly so that my translated pages would be indexed. Will it work again once I turn Pro back on in 10 days?

Do I need to remove the # from my ht access file when I turn Pro back on in 10 days? Would increasing the cache time help with preventing this in the future? Currently it is set for 900. What would be an appropriate setting? Also, while I am using the free version, what setting should I use: Google default, jquery, or redirect?

I also noticed recently that the number of indexed pages on my site increased dramatically. (endless-satsang.com) It went from about 5-6000 to 18-19000 pages just in the last month or so, and I have been using Gtranslate for many months now. Any idea why it would have increased so suddenly? Could this have triggered the error messages?

We too use the paid pro version. And we also use German as a "second" site language via joomfish and it works perfect in PRO-mode with translation method REDIRECT. This is the current .htaccess:

######### gtranslate config
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/de
RewriteRule ^([a-z]{2})/(.*)$ /gtranslate/translate.php?lang=$1&url=$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/de
RewriteRule ^([a-z]{2})$ /gtranslate/translate.php?lang=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^(zh-CN)/(.*)$ /gtranslate/translate.php?lang=$1&url=$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^(zh-CN)$ /gtranslate/translate.php?lang=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^(zh-TW)/(.*)$ /gtranslate/translate.php?lang=$1&url=$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^(zh-TW)$ /gtranslate/translate.php?lang=$1 [L,QSA]


This way we have 2 "native customized translated" languages and the other languages via Google.

Yet, after a few days we too experience the same issue and Google says "too many requests".

To wait for 10 days we have switched to FREE version with ON-THE-FLY and have outcommented all lines in the .htaccess.
Yet now our second language is no longer provided via joomfish but also via Google.

QUESTION:
How to setup FREE and ON-THE-FLY but to keep joomfish functionality for our second language?
Which line in the .htaccess do we have to modify?

Please indicate when this new version may be available.

Many thanks,
