    Hello all,
    I am wondering when you are making any website which language do you use: American English or British English?

    Is there really much difference apart from a few minor spelling differences?

    Wouldn't matter unless you were specifically creating a site for the US or UK.

    like people have already said, American is more popular, but obviously depending on your location, demographic etc.

    There really isn't much difference.

    I doubt it would matter for SEO.
