I do keyword research. In America.
I'm working on a new term that has 2 e's in it that are occasionally typed with an acute accent.
heck, the word is resume (WebmasterWorld doesn't seem to allow the special character (is there a way to type it in here?) I know the Word "control apostrophe e" trick but don't know how to do it here - and it really doesn't matter for now. I'm sure someone will tell me soon enough!
i know this as my highschool french seemed to burst into my mind to tell me this was an accent aigu.
So - should I value this keyword term as useful, or presume that the user using this affectation is just a poseur and a waste of time?

Darn. I misread the topic title as "aglu" (mistyped for aigu, aka "acute") and thought you were asking about seals' breathing holes in the ice.
If you try it you will see that g### ignores many diacritics in searches. That includes the specific word "resumé" which brings up hits for both "résumé" and "resume". But they've gotten much better about identifying things that are genuinely different letters, like ĺ or ř or ü.
