    Filipino audience is not Brazilian audience.
    Most of the Brazilian characters are similar to English.
    Where should I bookmark it? In the English bookmarking sites (like delicious)?
    Tnx

    The same theory can still be applied. Focus your marketing on Brazilian forums and other Brazilian social networking sites. If possible search google to see if you can find any Brazilian based social bookmarking sites and other types of Brazilian social media sites.

    I agree. Find local directories in local search language. For example where i live, we have location version like yahoo, but local name-site. So they allow you to add good site for free. Add site there - for example add to 30-40 directories and thats a good start. Also do it in the country language. Brazil = Portugese ?
    Good luck mate.

    To find directories in Brazil type in Portugese - i.e. search kewords :) also use google filter per country tld.

    In Brazil they speak Portuguese, but it's not the same as in Portugal.
    It's like an American English and Australian English.

    The problem is that I don't know Portuguese at all...
    I can ask him for the title, keywords and description.
    But how would if find the directories???

    Hey guys, a brazilian here!

    so, lets help a little:

    1- 95% characters of the brazilian portuguese are the same of English...

    2- If you speak spanish/italian it's easier write/promote a portuguese site =P

    3- The portuguese word for "directory" is "diretório"...so for search good brazilian/portuguese directories, only search for "Diretórios de Sites" (site directory)...don't try to search a Niche-directory...in the portuguese language we have only a few good directories, and they are general dir...

    4- Brazilian Social network => www.orkut.com 99% of the brazilians have an account in orkut

    5- Brazilian Search Engine => www.google.com.br I have a e-book related website, and 90% of my visitors come from google.com.br, and this search engine is 99% of my search-engines visitors (no one uses yahoo, ask and live search engines in brazil =P)

    If u need more help, send me another PM =P

    If you want to reach an enormous brazillian audience you HAVE to cut a deal with Globo.com their biggest media entity. I managed their email system for a few years before they switched to google mail recently. I suppose you could actually create adwords ads and target them JUST to appear on webmail.globo.com if its possible. Those kids LOVE their spam, and there are no laws against it in that country (at least from what I was told. I wasn't allowed AT ALL to enable any spam filtering on their outbound email servers for the entire duration of their stay. They spammed tonnnnnnns)

    One thing you can try is to automate the creation of thousands of doorway pages that lead to your site. Each one will have a keyword rich title and spun article with a huge visible link back to your main site...
