The website I work for is multi language. Some languages like English and French and Spanish use the iso-8859-1 encoding, while the Russian uses windows-1251 . And other languages already use UTF-8
Now, I want to convert all pages which are still encoded in iso-8859-1 and windows-1251 to UTF-8
My issue is: will this in any way affect my ranking on Google? What happens when Google bot scans my pages and see that there has been a change in all pages from, say:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=windows-1251">
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
Will this small change affect somehow my positions on Google ?
All other lines of html code remain completely unchanged, that would be the only change
Awaiting for feedback, thanks
