Help Determining The Geographical & Social Importance of Countries of the World...

Hey All,

I need help, from both a social and geographical standpoint, as to which countries to include in my network of photo sites (www.WorldPhotoSeries.com). To get an idea of what I'm doing, I've already launched www.CanadaPhotoSeries.com and www.ItalyPhotoSeries.com. Obviously I'm not going to have 180+ domains, so I am creating some more country inclusive ones (like OceaniaPhotoSeries.com, AfricaPhotoSeries.com & SouthAmericaPhotoSeries.com). At the same time, I want to be socially responsible and give the larger countries their own domain. Being from North America, I'm somewhat ignorant to the social importance of countries overseas, and was wondering if people could take a look at my list of countries already and my list of possible additions, and see what I may be missing?

Thanks in advance,

Tim L. Walker



List of currently owned domains:

AfricaPhotoSeries.com
AsiaPhotoSeries.com

Wow, Tim. Sounds like a very interesting project.
Speaking on "my areas", I think the Middle Eastern part can be very active as this includes a huge list of photographical areas (including Lebanon, Morroco, Tunis, etc) but I might suggest Egypt as a separate domain as it's a category on its own with all the ancient sights and wonders around that big country!

Having a "possible" domain for Turkey on its own is also a great idea. Wonderful country and very interesting and "different" scenes and styles all around its cities and traditions.
Good luck.

Yeah, that's what I'm looking for... I was thinking Egypt, too... Good idea.

Now, for the Middle East, do you think MiddleEastPhotoSeries.com is good enough, or should there be some other countries and/or regions that could/should be broken down further?

Thanks, Tim.
I'm really not sure about the Middle East - but will give you a tip that might be of interest: usually the Middle East is divided into 3 main areas (common accents, traditions, style, nature, etc) and these are: The GCC (including Saudi, Kuwait, Emirates "Dubai", ets) - then Levant (Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Iraq) and North Africa (including Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya and Algeria) and the last is the most popular, probably because they're more popular with "tourists" and tourism is very active.
Hope this helps too. Please let me know if you need any more help on this.

Well, I've got Africa covered w/ AfricaPhotoSeries... and I'll register SouthAfrica and Egypt seperately. Since the sites will all be in English (as it's the only language I know), I am targetting english-speaking users primarily... I'm not sure if people outside the Middle East would know the difference between those main areas... you think MiddleEastPhotoSeries.com would cover it ok?

Now, the 2 areas I'm mostly having trouble with are Asia and Europe. I'm fairly confident I've got the rest of the world covered ok. Am I missing any "important" countries on either of those continants?

Well, I was thinking of doing one for singapore... but it's so small... didn't think it really deserved it's own URL... though it had crossed my mind. Singapore is basically a city/country, right?

I'd think so - since Egypt is now on its own. Good luck on your project. (for further tips, you might want to try lonelyplanet.com)

Europe ?

Hi Tim, great idea. As a Brit living happily in The Netherlands I have to nominate my adopted home for it's own URL. The rumours of it being as flat as a pool table a greatly exaggerated (although the wide vistas give excellent sunrises and sunsets).
The Netherlands real strengths are it's multitude of historical cities, whose range of architectural styles will fill a memory card time and again.

er...do I sound enthusiastic ?
