Hi Guys

After reading the french saga of espot inclusion, I am having problems findingwhere exactly it says I need the website in the local country language to be included in Italy, Germany France etc.

Or will my submission to the UK filter through to the rest of Europe?
(Each office seems to produce different results)

Cheers from the Outback

Yeah garry, the site needs to be in the language that you're targetting. Think about that for a minute.

If you sign up for german keywords and your listings are shown to all the Espotting partners in Germany, I think the searchers would be somewhat disillusioned if they get fx. a french site on a german search. Wouldn't you think that was odd?

That's why they also are so picky about the copy in the case about the french site you mention.

Thanks Rumbas

Sounds like my budget will have to remain with Overtune DDR, and try the other Overt internationals.

Just pushing the envelope here but would a stand alone domain (just one homepage nicely translated and laid out with links to the english domain version) be passable to Gspot. (all open to see, no tricks)
I cant see any real problems....to me it isnt spam, I'm just paying for I suppose a "splash page in lingo" that manually links to another website.

The keywords are in english, luckily, no matter where in the world you are. (one of those hollowed trees that you blow air through to make a drone)

Any suggestions that are cost effective?
