Google has recently added more than 100 domains to its portfolio, with URLs such as: coloradogetonline.com, dakotagetonline.com, getoregononline.com, getpennsylvaniaonline.com, newyorkgetonline.com, northcarolinagetonline.com, ohiogetonline.com, etc, reports Bluementhal.
With this acquisition, it appears that Google is readying plans to roll out its "Get Your Business Online" program across the U.S.
"Get Your Business Online launched in March this year -- is Google's outreach program for small businesses. It offers them a free website, free hosting, domain name, a business listing on Google Places and additional marketing help. The freebies are good for one year, and cost a nominal fee after that."
There's also a $75 AdWords credit, which speaks at least partially to Google's business motive here: The more new AdWords advertisers Google attracts, the better for Google's bottom line.
