The videos are quick and to the point.
And this past week’s video answers a question that I’ve thought about for a while:
Does it matter to Google if you use local, non-English words in your URL?
The TL;DR (too long, didn’t read) answer is: it doesn’t make a difference to Google.
In fact Google recommends the local, non-English words for non-English websites.
But you’ll still want to make it easy for people to link to your pages by creating URLs that:
- Use dashes or underscores to separate words (I’m a fan of dashes)
- Don’t include spaces or commas
- Don’t include special characters
