As you may or may not know, I usually monitor the domain name purchases of some of the major online retailers and web properties. Certain domain name purchases catch my eye, and I try to post about it when something noteworthy is in the works. Usually, when someone has plans for something, they will purchase the domain name related to the new product or service–and companies planning big campaigns or products and services are no different.

In an interesting move, Google has purchased a bunch of domain names related to encouraging people to get online. This large purchase of 45 domain names today includes names such as GetOnlineAmerica.com, GetOnlineCalifornia.com, and GetOnlineCarolinas.com. The list of domain names purchased today by Google indicate to me that they’re planning some sort of nationwide campaign to encourage Americans to “get online”. But, of course, this is all just speculation on my part.

The list of domains that include “get online” tends to be centered around the individual States. But in some cases, Google has combined certain markets, such as the “Carolinas” and “Dakotas”. Noticeably absent are certain States such as Texas.
