[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] SEO page analysis is not accurate on non English languages (3 posts)

    For instance in Romanian we have more letters than English alphabet has and the post slug does not usually contain ş ţ ă î â letters.

    So when the plugin says that page URL does not contain the Focus Keyword sculptură, it might not be so bad as it sounds; as far as we cand see in Google, we can search in both ways and the results stay quite the same, just like Google can read as a the ă letter (and the other way around).

    I think it sould take knowledge of other languages than English to get best results.

    Page URL: No

    Another reason for not using a-z standard letters in the url is this one:

    We cannot read the encoded link version; most websites that to secure their pages. That link is a random example from Google+

    I have to second this.

    It looks like it doesn't recognize capital and small letters either.
