teoma.nl (this looks to be the same as the others, though it has Dutch advertisements).
this is what google thinks of the current teoma serps. .com = pr8; .net = pr2; .org = pr3; .nl = pr4.
I don't know how it is being weighted out, but the db's are identical at the moment, maybe have to watch them before and during the next update cycle
.fr, .it, .se, .de, .es, are not there yet, but could be on the cards.
It would make sense to get ground in the larger languages like German, Spanish and French and going for smaller ones like Danish, Swedish etc on a longer term. Problem is the serps in Europe are becomming competetive and more commercialised along the way. PPC is spreading and directories are charging in most countries.
The local serps has to be real good and offer perfect relevance. They have fit the local users need for copy that he understands. He deals with english everywhere on the web, and appealing to him in his own language pays off.
Teoma needs to gain some ground over here. Both in terms of providing local search and getting it searched.
Hope they will give it a shot.
Think the Americans would say: PR Baby! Gotta get PR. ;)
If Teoma could make some serious headway into the European Continent, and stand as tall as Google, Fast and the directories, then this may be the way for them to go before targetting the English speaking world.
as far as i am aware .de is still the second biggest language on the web, so that would be a serious place for Teoma to dig in, alternatively the biggest spoken language in the world, is not English or Chinese, its actually Spanish, and as the various primary and secondary spanish speaking countries, come further in to the digital affluence that affords most of the western world, i think there will be a major explosion of spanish pages, certainly beyond german.
