I am curious how other SEO's market one search engine that provides two different results to their customers. Example: Google Australia; .au or web results can be obtained. Both results are completely different. Obviously the web results being the more competitive than the regional.
Now, if you tell a client that their website will rank in 10 SE's, do we agree that would be 10 individual SE's? On the other-hand, do some SEO's count the regional as one result and web as another to meet there 10 quota when dealing with regional domains, marketing Internationally? ie. achieve #20 Google .au & web results, that leave 8 SE's to go!
I look at one engine being exactly that; one engine. However, the more I think about this, with one engine supplying two completely different results, does it count as two engines and would it be ethical?
Obviously, if your website has no interest in other regions, then this would not count, as you would only want the specific regional listing, whatever that may be. As stated, what if you hold a regional domain and market Internationally? Is this then correct to sell one engine as two listing out of say your target of 10? Professionalism, Honesty, Integrity, Laziness or Worse?
