RealNames Spricht Deutsch

From The Search Engine Report
June 2, 1999

The popular German search service Fireball is now displaying RealNames information at the top of its web results, similar to how RealNames have been presented at AltaVista.

A key difference is that for the first time, a regional set of RealNames is being used. For instance, search for BMW at AltaVista, and the RealNames link will take you to the global BMW site, www.bmw.com. In contrast, the RealNames link at Fireball takes you to the German BMW site, www.bmw.de. Similarly, other searches at Fireball draw from a database of German RealNames.

It's a great concept that I can't wait to see extended. It neatly solves the problem of which corporate web site to serve up when a company is multinational.
