    I'm setting up a site in the Bulgarian language. All content will be in Bulgarian Cyrillic. Should I make the url's in Cyrillic also, or use Bulgarian Latin? The domain is in Latin so if I make the content URL's in Cyrillic then the full URL will then contain both Latin and Cyrillic letters. I hope this makes sense!
    I am asking from and SEO perspective.

    No need too. Lots of Cyrillic sites just use the transliterated version of the word and Bulgarians type a lot using the standard non-Cyrillic keyboard so its not really an issue. I don't remember any of my Bulgarian friends visiting sites with Cyrillic URLS.

    Thanks, that helps. I was a little concerned with SEO, the intitle, inurl and in description meta, the intitle and meta description will have the cyrillic but the url won't.
    Thanks again.
