I'd like to hear about how to get the best reaching local googles once your site is spidered in your own language.

Will other googles pick your page automatically if they use same language? IE Google.es and Google.cl (both spanish)

What if your site is english - spanish?
How to reach all english countries trough google?

Is the question too dumb or no one really knows about it...?

Spanish, English, Klingon, its all the same, just put the pages up and they will be recognised by all Googles worldwide.

Put a language meta tag in the header but I don't think the search engines bother looking at it. They seem to go by the text on the page.

So your point is once your site was spidered will automatically reach googles all over the world and there is nothing else to do to get a deep penetration in other googles.

Interesting and simple.

Other people do you agree? Is there nothing special to do in order to reach googles around the world to get maximum exposure with your website?

For a regional search you need to be on a local ip or have the country domain extension.

Links from other sites within that country may help you rank in that country's google.

And what are your chances of doing well with a .com then?

I guess putting a mirror site .com .countryextension is not ok to SE...

There is no difference between the local and remote Googles. When your page is downloaded by Googlebot, it is distributed to all datacenters. There is no physical www.google.ca, www.google.de, etc. Google distributes requests for a specific google to your nearest datacenter. You can check this by starting the program nslookup on your computer. This network utility is present on most computers.

Then enter the names of a local google domain and look at the IP addresses. Enter another local google domain and check the IP address again. You could test:

www.google.com (general)
www.google.de (Germany)
www.google.ca (Canada)
www.google.nl (Netherlands)

You will probably see the same set of three IP addresses each time. The difference between local versions of Google is in the algorithm, not in the data behind it.
