I’m building a new web page, and I can’t make up my mind about the characters to use. The page will be in Romanian, so according to Romanian grammar, many words “should” contain characters with accents. But the readers would easily understand the words even without accents and writing the characters without accents is a pretty common practice over here, and it would not at all harden the intelligibility of the text. But what about the SEO part? Would this affect the site’s rankings in search engines? Or should I use accents on some pages and characters without accents on others?

Thanks a lot! :slight_smile:

Search engines recognize special language characters, especially if you’re using the search engine in that language.

But, you could try setting up and A/B test.
