Regional Editions Chart

author-default
by , Comments

This chart shows where each of the major search engines extends a regional presence. For each country, a yes indicates that the search engine offers a substantial, specific service for each country, either with custom search results or a custom interface. AltaVista is an exception. In Asia, Europe and Latin America, it offers mirror sites designed to appeal to users from a variety of countries in these regions. It also offers multilingual search through its "One World" technology that will especially appeal to those speaking Asian languages.

This chart is as of July 15, 1998. Dates are DD/MM/YY.
