Geomorphology and Human Geography

Portugal is in south-west Europe, making up about 15% of the Iberian Peninsula. On it's western and southern coastline is the Atlantic ocean. It has coastal plains rising to high mountainous areas to the north of the river Tagus. Here you will find the steep-sided mountains of Tras-os-Montes. To the south of this is the Douro valley, running from the border with Spain to Oporto, on the coast.

South of the Tagus is the Alentajo, where you will find wheat fields and cork plantations. This continues to the hinterland of the Algarve, on the southern coastline. Here you may find groves of almonds, fig and olive trees.

Exports include textiles, wine, fish and cork. Agriculture crops include wheat and maize, as well as grapes and tomatoes. Tourism is a major industry and the main foreign currency earner. Manufacturing industry includes textiles and clothing, footwear, food processing and cork products.

The capital of Portugal is Lisbon [Lisboa], and this is where Google Inc., Portugal offices are located.

@Mike On the point of RSS feeds do you know, or can you point me in the direction of, any information that would tell me how to create a personal RSS feed for a sub-set of my articles? I can do it at HP but not, apparently, here.
Thanks in advance for any insight.

humagaia on 02/06/2012

No problem. If there is anything else you find on my articles that you would like to know how to achieve, just ask. I will do my best to answer - as quick as possible. Here to help.

teddletonmr on 02/06/2012

Thanks...;)

humagaia on 02/06/2012

Katie, glad to be of service. There is so much to know and so much to forget with Google and all it's worldwide services. Things move apace. Nothing stands still in the Googleverse. I will be interspersing various of the Google Countries articles with some on other aspects of Google that may be of assistance, or explain certain aspects of Google and it's products and functions. I hope they will also be of use to you.

humagaia on 02/06/2012

Actually Mike I cannot think of enough words to make a Wizz out of the Twitter RSS link, so I will address that here. To create a Twitter RSS feed:
1. Click the RSS feed button in the list of Wizzley buttons
2. Enter this URL portion http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=
3. Then add the subset of tweets you want to appear, such as "Google Portugal"
4. Before you finish, replace each 'space' with a '+'.

So you get something like:
http://search.twitter.com/search.atom...

It's as simple as that!

humagaia, It's always good to stay informed as to the workings of Google across the globe, I hope to be far reaching and your articles help me to understand the differences and similarities. Thanks

humagaia on 02/06/2012

Mike, np. As soon as I get time I will create a Wizz about the how to of Twitter RSS creation. Glad that Google Portugal has been a + for you.

teddletonmr on 02/06/2012

humagaia, thanks for the info on Wiki info and its effects on SEO, and Google AdSense adds. I would be interested in learning how to create the Twitter RSS.
Make it a great day, Mike

humagaia on 02/06/2012

Thanks Mike. One thing you might like to be aware of is that the Wiki info is part of the SEO in that what appears there is taken into account for adsense ads, and in long-tails.
If you want to know how to create the Twitter RSS just ask - if there is enough requirement, and I can find enough words, I will create a Wizz.

teddletonmr on 02/06/2012

Wow, great use of the Wizzley tools making this article a pleasure to read.
I discovered a lot of new information about Portugal, Portugese news, twitter, facebook, and Google pt.
Thanks for the heads-up.
