Last week, AOL launched its Italian Web portal.
This week, AOL launches AOL España.
Said AOL President and COO Ron Grant in a recent interview:
“We are going to be expanding internationally. We’re going to have a relentless focus on building.” AOL plans localized portals in 30 territories by the end of 2009. Grant: “We are behind internationally. We sold off access so we�re starting from a very small base; I think we’re in seven countries now. We start off about 100 million uniques (through AIM, Winamop, Mapquest and ICQ).” As for Platform A, “we are going to take this monetization global.”
More to come…
