I am the owner of website pretesti.ge. The content is not English and when I try to optimize it for SEO I come across the misspelling errors ("This page contains some spelling errors.").

  1. Is there a way to ignore this errors?
  2. Do these errors affect Google rankings?

My site's permalinks are set to the "post name", seems the name looks something like "საატესტატო_გამოცდები" do you think that it may affect too?

If the tool you use is SortSite from Powermapper:

It seems to support English and French only:

Spell and content checking features include:
· Check English and French Spelling (US, UK and international English spelling variants)


(If or how spelling errors may affect Google’s ranking should be a different question, as this topic is unrelated to your issue; it would also require more details about the kinds of spelling errors. So if you are interested in this, you should probably create another question.)

You can add a "Content-Language HTTP header" so that Google does not consider this as spelling errors. If you already have this, then probably there should not be any issues with your SEO.

The Content-Language HTTP header describes the natural language(s) of the intended audience for the document, which is not necessarily the same as the language contained in the document. Google also ignores all code-level language information when determining the language of a document, so it might ignore the Content-Language header anyway. Google uses its own algorithms to determine content language. –  w3d Dec 27 '13 at 17:41

Thanks w3d. It was a common misconception regarding that header(stackoverflow.com/questions/6157485/…). Thanks for correcting me(w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html) –  Rana Prathap Dec 28 '13 at 5:10
