    Unhappy Spanish optimizing


    Jeez... I am having a terrible time optimizing my Spanish site.

    There are no tools out there that can help you find some good keywords or how popular they are. I am using the ones I think will get more searches, but now I have a problem. Spanish language uses accents. I have no idea if people use them when they search for something. For example, the Spanish word for tree is "árbol".

    For the keyword "árbol" I am on position #18... for the keyword "arbol", without the accent, I am on position #558... what should I do???? I don't know if people use the propper word, or just type it without the accent!

    very frustrating...

    Hi

    spanish people (in spain at least) don't use the accents when searching. Keyword suggestion tools also give you spanish searches, such as overture and wordtracker, use digitalpoint's suggestion tool and you can target it to spain

    Persiga el deletreo regular sin los acentos. Usted encontrará mejores resultados esa manera- y permitirá que el idioma del sistema operativo cuide de al cliente.
