I think it's a terrific food-for-thought question. How does g### apply its algorithm when it can't apply it to anything? Are we in a historical backwater where searches are still where they were in 2003 or even 1993?
If anyone hereabout routinely searches in Arabic or Japanese or some other language that g### might reasonably be expected to know, do you see a difference in behavior between the other language and English? (When the OP said "unicode languages" I assumed you meant languages in a completely non-Roman script, not just languages with less common diacritics.) My only meaningful experience is with Yandex image search, which can only tell me that they're translating their stuff more-or-less accurately.
Secondary question, with no thought required but I'm baffled. Why does the "Active Posts" list persist in saying there are seven messages in this thread when in fact there are only three? The Google SEO forum listing has it right.
I re-checked after posting this, and it's now correctly saying four. Curiouser and curiouser.
