Google Isle Of Man

I think it doesn't matter, as long as - I'm guessing here - someone is willing to pay for geo-targeted Adwords ....
Isn't that a contradiction in terms?
Since only two things are certain, death and taxes, hopefully heaven is a haven for taxes ... because we have tax hell here on earth.

I don't think it has much to do with Geotargeting -- but on the other hand, I have no idea how different the people there feel (compared to people in say England).
Regarding the smallest community covered, I found it interesting that even the Swiss Romantsch language is covered by Google: http://www.google.ch/webhp?hl=rm (according to Wikipedia there are only something like 35k people who said it was their main language -- compared to 80k people living in Isle of Man). I bet there are smaller communities that are covered though, heh.
I did however notice that we don't have a version specifically for South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, despite there being a population of ~20. I suppose the cut-off is somewhere in between those numbers .

Soooooooo, they serve no purpose at all then, Jon? I mean - if I use the Isle of Man Google or .com, or .co.uk - I'll get the same results, right? (My searches going through one data centre regardless of the Google domain extension I'm searching in?- or have I got that mixed up?)
