    Country Specific Optimization


    I want to target more than one country. For example: Au, Uk, NZ

    I'm planning to get few country based links through guest blogging but have one question

    Which will effect most:

    Backlinks from Country Specific Domain Extension or Country Specific Hosting ?

    Links from sites related to the location will be most useful. In my experience, hosting in the geographic target area is far more important than the TLD but both should be used. Making sure your site is hosted in the majority market share area is also important. If you think you will get more than 50% of your market in the UK, then you should host there, if not then probably AU.
    Getting high power links with your keywords on powerful websites in each region will be key to your success here.

    Links from the country specific domains specifically guest blogs will be more useful, plus, Add country names in the titles and content will help search engines understand more easily which country is being targeted via particular guest blog.
