Google launches two new domains for Iraq and Tunisia

Google.iq
Google have launched two new localized domains for Iraq and Tunisia, bringing Google's search domains to a whopping 184 worldwide. The two new domains google.iq and google.tn allow for faster, better, and easier local search in both Iraq and Tunisia, as well as interface languages to suit. Both domains are available in English, but google.iq is also available in Arabic and Kurdish, where as google.tn can be read in Arabic and French.

Now users from either Iraq or Tunisia can search and find local listings for shops, banks, restaurants and other businesses, as well as government provided amenities, just by searching using the appropriate keywords like you would on google.com or google.co.uk. It's all part of Google's vision to cover the world's top 40 spoken languages, allowing them to reach 99% of global Internet users and provide them with Google services, oh and ads, of course.
