In episode 172 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked whether an English link counts or adds any value to a French site.

The exact question was:

Hi Guys, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to have our questions answered. my question is if i have a site in lets say french language and i'm located in france , so if i get a link from a site in english, or any other llanguage than french , does this link counts or of any value to better my ranking ? thank you again
