We are in luck, Google has just opened a commercial office in the heart of Barcelona, specifically just four blocks from our seo agency in Barcelona. Google's intention is to promote access to its Google Cloud services to companies in the city and its metropolitan area, especially those larger companies in the area and Google Cloud Services partners themselves.
The main objective of the opening of this new Google office is to be closer and more accessible to Catalan companies and take advantage of the commercial and technological pull that gives the company the opening of the first Google data center in Spain last week and that will serve Southern Europe. This data center, one of 32 in the world, will allow Google Cloud Services customers to store their data in Spain and, above all, enjoy a higher level of security, access to higher connection speeds and latency, which is a competitive advantage over its competitors. For example, as a seo agency we can help improve the seo positioning of our customers, since we can have their websites hosted in the Google cloud, enjoying faster websites and working with Spanish IP, something we could not do until now.
Google has chosen Barcelona for its technological dynamism, its digital talent, the strategic importance of a growing online market such as tourism, which accounts for 12% of its GDP, and the growing number of renowned technology companies opening offices in our city. Barcelona is a pole of attraction for start-ups and talent in digital marketing, web programming, etc., with more than 1900 companies -only in 2021 194 new start-ups were created-.
Although the opening of this office in the Catalan capital is great news, we have to admit that the opening is moderate, given that only 40 people will work in Barcelona, while 300 people work in Madrid.
We have new neighbors: Google! And only 4 blocks away
