I've ranked up quite a few sites in my IM carreer however now I could use some advice. Until now I've only ranked up English sites. My girlfriend had a good business idea for a Russian webshop (and she's Russian). I helped her a bit with the setup, configuration, design. Now the site is almost finished, almost all the products are added but now comes for me the real challenge. How do I rank a Russian site without speaking (or being able to read) Russian. - Can I rank the site using for example English articles? The anchors will be normal "English" words as we want to rank for certain brands. So the anchors will be brands, or would it be better that the entire article would be in Russian too? - Does anyone have a lot of experience with Yandex, does it require something special or does normal linkbuilding, social bookmarking,.. also work fine for Yandex? - Has anyone used Russian letters in their URL? It looks fine when you're at the site, but really strange when you copy/paste a link. - Would you advice me to just use the services on this forum or would you recommend something/someone else? - Any other tips would be very helpful.
