    This is an excellent book, and a must have for the search market

    This is an excellent book, and a must have for the search marketer or Internet marketer who deals in global search campaigns. It is somewhat surprising to me that something like this hasn't come along until now. Overall, it is a book you will want to keep handy, and in arm's reach for knowing and referring to the nuances of global search engine marketing.

    I particularly like the way that each country has a synopsis and report of the details that are very important to your target audiences in these areas, and could make the difference between capturing a customer, or not.

    I ordered a stack of copies of this book for our teams.
