Here it goes,

I am a Lebanese translator registered in under the name Wa'ad Younane. (my name is arabic and means PROMISE in English)

However, the majority of people when using search engines to look for my name skip the apostrophe that is dividing my name and simply write Waad Younane.

Is it possible to obtain the same results for Wa'ad and Waad? I didn't think this was important but since I became member, I am yielding real fruits and would like to benefit more from this incredibly useful site.

Worth every penny already:)

Try adding "Waad Younane" to your key words in your profile Sep 26, 2007

That should do the trick.

I see you have already added the keywords... Sep 26, 2007

Which is good. That will indeed do the trick, once Google gets to your page again.

Another thing you can do is customize the title of your page, for example changing it to Wa'ad / Waad Younane - English to Arabic / Lebanese legal translator (for example). You can do that from here:  Identity Verified

Another version Sep 26, 2007

Dear Wa'd,

I have written another version of your name (Wa'd), as I think there is not "a" after "(').

Kind regards

A million thanks... Sep 26, 2007

... it has indeed ocurred to me to add the versions to the keywords. And I have changed the title as well so hopefully this will work:)

I will be trying the google search engine once in a while to see the change.

thank you for your replies, this really helps!
