    In google serp but not no sign in country specfic google serp


    hello seochat,
    well our one site is in 4th position for a keyword in google.com
    but
    it is not even in top 10 pages in our country specific google

    since our is country specific pages we will get visitor from local google

    we have used most of the seo techniques offsite and onsite (that's why it is in google.com any way)

    so what can we do now so that we can bring it in local google serp?
    bit confused
    thanks

    I would start adding your businesses to Google Places, even if you don't have a physical location. There are methods to improving your local SEO on Google Places. Use those methods and make sure your profile is 100% filled out. Make sure you attach videos and images where allowed associated with your industry (spend time and find videos that have been SEO optimized). Even set up a coupon. All that adds up to a great local profile. For your business name in Places add a hyphen and add your top keyword. example is: "Cool IT Company - Onsite and Remote Business IT Support" . Lastly use your imagination, but be fair as to not keyword stuff.... that is easy to do if you get to eager. That will most likely fix your problem within a months time.

    Do you have a Google Webmasters Tools (GWMT) account? After you have verified your site with in GWMT you can select the country that you want the site to rank in. Verify and then go to this URL to select country>> https://www.google.com/webmasters/to...DomainName.com

    After this has been selected Google will reassign the domain to the right country index.

    Excellent idea. This is much better than mine! I found this info on GWT Q&A for frank1:

    "If no information is entered in Webmaster Tools, we'll rely largely on the site's country domain (.ca, .de, etc.). If an international domain (.com, .org, .eu, etc) has been used, we'll rely on several signals, including IP address, location information on the page, links to the page, and any relevant information from Google Places. If you change hosting provider for a country domain, there should be no impact. If you change the hosting provider of an international domain to a provider in another country, we recommend using Webmaster Tools to tell us which country your site should be associated with."

    Thanks to both.

    So if we do that,will it effect our current ranking in google.com?

    Lets suppose the keyword is "spanish poems"
    keyword is generic enough to be in google.com serp as well.So,after changing the country, will it only appear in country specific google?

    thanks

    I think you have to work on local classifieds and local business listing sites more. This will definitely help you.
