google.com.do

I am spending some time on the road and found something very interesting. We all know how the world thinks Americans are very American-centric and we are. When I logged into the hotel internet in the Dominican Republic, the page it brought me to was Google.com.do - as you might expect. Then the eye-opener.

I was using stockcharts.com and and the sidebar ads were all in Spanish! Again, no surprise when you think about it but who knew? I bet plenty of non-American stockcharts users in English speaking countries would be surprised.

And now, as I post this blog, the login line was in - Spanish! And I am on my regular blogger links.

Give you any ideas for tapping into global markets?
