    I rank for a keyword (French one) like this one : equipe, when I do my keyword research this keyword : "équipe" got pretty much the same amount of search, only the accent is the difference and in Google there a difference between the two in the ranking position.

    So my question is what is your opinions on my course of action ? Which is:

    Taking the keyword with the highest search number "equipe" put it in the title of my article, H1 tag... and put "équipe" in the meta tag and anchor text (I will also do this with "equipe").

    I did this a couple of years ago fo the term "Deja Vu"
    In French the have the accent and grave over the E and A (or is that the other way around...you know what I mean) but most times when written in English - they don't
    Google keyword had both listed and the results were VERY different

    The old Google KW tool often had two very similar words listed with identical specs meaning (I'm pretty sure) that it dealt with them as the same word or phrase.
    i.e "specialized" and "specialised" would have identical EPC, monthly , competing ..you name it.

    Deja Vu and the French spelling (which I can't work out on this keyboard) had totally different metrics.
    That being the case here (it might - no guanrantee) I would go for both and maybe even have two landing pages. Mixing them up might confuse Big G as it probably (for some reason) thinks they are different.

    As Scritty has mentioned, have a look at the keyword analytics for each version of the word. If they have completely different results it probably means you would have to target one or the other, or both separately.

    Appreciate the quick response guys.

    In my case the results in ranking are slightly different, the number one is number two in one version of the keyword and vice versa, but I want to rape the traffic on both keywords.

    They have same results page except 1st and 2nd position so I think Google resolve that, plus I see similar pattern from others keywords who are the same with and without accent.

    I will use the second keyword to theme my page.

    Thanks.
