Creating sites in various languages for different countries?

Hi,

Newbie here. Gotta say Mark, this is unequivocally the best $30 I have spent on the internet. Thank you so much!! You provide a standard for us all to rise to.

Anyway, quick question: When I get listed with the search engines, will that automatically list me in all of the foreign countries? I am launching a product in Europe and will have to create pages in multiple languages---a logistical challnge to be sure.

In fact, if there is anybody who can offer advice on how to go about creating an e-commercible (able?) site in multiple languages you would be my hero.

Also, wondering about the directory listings. I will have to do this in different directories for all of the countries? Or are there some international directories that automatically register globally? i sure hope so.

Glad to be here, Peace. Susan

Just have your site linked to from other sites, and your listings will do the rest. You can't tell Google you want special preference for a certain country.

Okay, thanks. that is good news to me.

And I think I have figured out the logistics for the international thing. My head is just racing with ideas.

Peace, Susan
