Hi all

Bit of a strange question.

When searching for local spanish services in spain, which search engine do you generally use.

Is it a .com or .es or .co.uk

Thanks

Steven

I us .co.uk for the fact that I read google news rather than go buy UK papers. I don't think it really matters which you use and you can always adjust the search settings

google.es will bring better local (spanish) results, however google will detect your location, and if you are searching from the UK results will be different again.
Howver you can use google's extended settings, to change your location/language to Spain/Spanish, then you will get the same local results as someone would get here in Spain using google.es
