What Is This? [google Issue]
Posted 15 September 2004 - 04:11 PM
google.com for worldwide and USA
google.com.mx for mexico
google.de for deutschland
I found out, that there is a google.com.ve for Venezuela.
But that google doesn´t search "Sites in Venezuela" like the rest of the googles (except google.com). It only has two options: "search the web" and "search sites in spanish".
what about this?:
Isn´t it weird that there is a google.co.ve site for google?
And also it has the "search sites in venezuela" option, that the "original" google.com.ve doesn´t have.
Does anybody know why is this?

It´s not something that disturbs me or something, but I was just curious.
I don´t know why the
what does that .co mean?

I've noticed such things in the first launch of google.co.il - This is google doorway to surfers from Israel.
The CO usually appears in local .com domains. I believe you can find .co.uk etc. as well - so I don't think it's weird at all but rather very common.
Any way one more word about google.co.XX domains, I've noticed throughout the last few months, that google.co.il often has different listings and ranks to certain sites. It might differ from Rank #1 for specific KW in .co.il domain while having no rank at all for that same KW in google.com listings. This cases usually even up in a matter of a week or two, but even then in most cases it is not rare to find a site located #3 at .com and #1 on the local .co.XX for the exact same KW.
That's about all I have to share about this matter.
Have a nice weekend ya'll

Each country-based tld (top level domain) decides what second level domains it will use.
Some countries choose .com.xx and some choose .co.xx (equally, some choose edu.xx and some choose .ac.xx).
It would seem that .ve has chosen to provide both .co.ve and .com.ve. Strange, but their choice.
Given that both are available, I would expect google to buy both google.co.ve and google.com.ve to protect their brandname, if nothing else.
Google didn't make this choice, the .ve controllers did.
