    en-lang tag


    Hello everyone,

    I am new in SEO optimization, I have readed a few books and watched some tutorials of SEO optimization.
    I got a question to the expirienced SEO optimizators:

    Is it possible that google doesn't register my page and bad for the overall SEO if my page leanguage is set to lang="en-gb" but it acctuali is bulgarian and it should be lang="bg"?
    Can that cause big problem?

    Best regards ant thanks in advance for your answers!

    Are you talking about the code right at the start of the document being: <html lang="en-gb">?

    That could perhaps be one of the reasons then yes. However Google does use a variety of ways of determining a sites language. I would say to change it though as soon as you could.
