    I have a WP multisite installation and database from last year, my blog with NEWSCAST is in German (backend and frontend) and in my admin settings is utf-8 set.

    So far so good – each post shows the correct “umlauts” in German: ä, ö, ü.

    Now I have searched my fresh new NEWSCAST site with Google this way, and see this:

    It must be: »KUNSTBLOG für Foto…«

    I have no SEO plugin active, that could have changed anything!

    The header.php of NEWSCAST is in my case this:

    <?php if( is_404( )) { header("Location: /",TRUE,301); } ?>

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">

    <html xmlns="" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>

    <?php global $k_option, $query_string; $k_option = $query_string; ?>

    <head profile="">

    <!-- basic meta tags -->

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />

    <meta name="language" content="de">

    Why are these “umlauts” not correct at Google?

    What is wrong in the header.php?



    Hi colorit2,

    We have no way to control how Google renders its search results. When I search it for instance I get the correct punctuation:
