Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
I haven't even had an answer to my first question yet and here I am asking more questions! Just who do I think I am?
Anyway, I am in the translation business, English to Russian. My site is primarily in English but there are certain sections which need to be written in Russian and that means using the Cyrillic alphabet.
I hope to attract visitors when they search in Russian. Google, and others, recognise Russian language searches, which is why I am adding these sections to my site.
When I enter the Russian text into my site it is fine, perfectly visible and clear to read. However, if I click 'View' then 'Source' all I see are strange symbols which is an obvious sign that it is not recognising the Cyrillic characters.
OK, so here is my question - When a spider comes to look at my page, will it see the page itself or the source code behind it? Becasue if it cannot index the words then it cannot list the site for a Russian search.
Always ready to learn more.
