Hello,

I am continuing to pull together guidelines for multilingual web site
development, and have a few questions that I am hoping someone out there can
answer.

What I am wondering is whether or not specific methods for submission of
sites to search engines are more effective when dealing with international
audiences.

--Should submission approaches be modified for sites trying to reach
specific locales? For example, are certain search engines more common in
certain places?

--Do any "for pay" submission services specialize in international markets?

--Has anyone had problems with a service because of character sets used in
keywords, etc?

--Are there any specific submission issues that apply to sites planned for
international use?

Any comments would be appreciated.

Thanks!
