I read somewhere it could take a couple of months to work....

Why not just get a .es or host the subdomain on a Spanish IP range?

Yo Conor, have you noticed any odd inclusions in the Paginas de Espana results?
Over on G.ie we're finding quite a number of pages in the PFI results that in theory shouldn't be there... (US hosted .coms)

Because the Webmaster tools option, if it worked, would be free ;-)

Just did a quick check but not seeing PDE results with US ip's on .com's in a couple of the sectors we watch

It might be free for G but what about Y and ML?
.es are now open registration and cost €8

I"m not so sure about it taking a couple of months to work.
Weird thing is that I set ours for USA and then we got bombarded with international orders. I turned it back off and it's back to normal with in a couple of days.
Too quirky for me. I'm leaving it off for now.

For this particular domain, it's not worth any investment - the question was more academic, for future possibilities.
But just out of interest, where can you get .es domains for €8?

If you search in G, in Spanish you should be able to find many registrars offering .es from 8 to 20 Euros for 1 year.

Have you looked at their backlinks? They may have enough .ie backlinks to hit the PFI results.
I see it allll the time in .au results 'how did they get here? oh, backlinks...'

As an update for anybody interested (I had almost forgotten about this myself!), some time during this month of February the change has finally kicked in, and searches for my subdomain now show up in google.es when the "páginas de España" (Sites from Spain) option is chosen.
The main domain shows up in all other international searches.
So it looks like the changes take around 3 months to take effect.
