My online shop currently uses Cyrillic directories since I am targeting Bulgaria, which has a Cyrillic alphabet. I did this in hopes of getting better ranks (it kind of worked I think).
It's also easier for file names when adding new categories and items in the shop.
1 year later I am redesigning this site since I am much more knowledgeable and want to make it better looking and better working.
But I am uncertain as to wheater I should keep the Cyrillic directories. I can always use transcription for all the folders.
The Cyrillic URL only has one drawback that I know of - trying to copy and paste the URL results in this encoding
And by God this is hard to work with... So I can imagine how frustrating it is for the users.
On the other hand thou, I don't want to let it go because of how neat and clean the URL looks and the possible SEO benefits.
So is it worth keeping a Cyrillic directory for better SEO?
