Multinational Search: New Column From Search Engine Land

Our newest Search Engine Land column, Multinational Search, launches today. Multinational Search looks at the complex challenges of search marketing in multiple countries and languages. Columnists focus both on the technical complexities of creating and managing a campaign spread across the world, and also at the cultural issues that arise when trying to appeal to different local tastes and needs. The Multinational Search column appears weekly at Search Engine Land.

Our Multinational Search columnists are:
