    Attention scandinavians!

    Anyone know if it's good for seo to have ä,ö or å in a domain name? Or should I just replace them with a/o instead?

    Doesn´t matter to Google, but I suggest you buy both to protect your domain.

    Ha det så bra :)

    I did not know it was even possible.

    IF you can then I guess its good for ranking in those countries.

    It is possible but Google identifies å ä ö as o a a in Scandinavia so it´s not really a problem.

    However, it is of course preferable to buy both versions since you want to protect your brand/domain.

    Well, I don't think Google read those "letters" but you can try it. Make a site and work on it, tell us later on.

    Don´t write if you can´t contribute with correct information.

    I run many Swedish sites with å ä ö in the domain and I know for sure that G identifies it exact domains for the kw.
