Suppose You Google “Mia Mottley” While In Dubai Or China…
… or in San Francisco, Zurich or Madrid – it all comes back the same and the result was a big surprise to me.
Out of over twelve thousand returns on Google, articles from Barbados Free Press are #1 and #2. (!)
Wikipedia is #3, while articles from Barbados Underground are #4 and #5.
Searches for “David Thompson”, “Barbados Prime Minister” and other politicians and government ministers produce similar results.
What it means is that when other governments, international financiers and business people use Google to research the political leadership in Barbados, more often than not the world’s premier search engine directs them to one or more Barbados blogs in the “top ten” first page of returns.
How the world has changed.
