Government Information using Power Google Searching

The first thing you need to find out is the top-level domain (TLD) for the country you are trying to research. To find this, use this Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Country_code_top-level_domain.

Next, try to discover what the government site or sites are. Countries can design this any way they wish, so there are no universal rules. Here are the TLDs for countries currently being used for this course:

Bahamas  .bs - Government: gov.bs

Bermuda .bm – Government: gov.bm

Canada .ca - Government sites vary: gc.ca, canada.ca, and others

Mexico .mx - Government: gob.mx

Turks and Caicos Islands .tc – Government: gov.tc

Arctic Region – try searching the countries within the region having territorial claims: Canada (.ca), Denmark (via Greenland) (.gl or .dk), Finland (.fi), Iceland (.is), Norway (.no), Russia (.ru), Sweden (.se) and the United States (via Alaska) (.gov, .mil, and others).

TLD Searching Examples:
