    Hey guys,

    I am currently doing SEO for a french website. As you may know, there are special characters that exist in french but not in english. How can I deal with such characters.

    Ex: é, ê, è

    The main keyword contain one special characters. Shouldnt I just dont use it at all and use the letter "e" instead?

    Any tips appreciated.

    ;)

    is your target going to be using google.fr or google.com? that's all you gotta decide.

    Well i would like to target both...

    It's why I dont really know what to do.

    Does google.com allows special characters on their listings?

    Man Google.com indexes any kind of characters. I have some arabic websites and they're all indexed in google. im using the UTF-8 encoding on my pages and its going very well.
