    1. From the International Targeting section, choose the Country tab.
    2. Check the Geographic target checkbox and choose your country target.

    You can create a sub domain like targetcountry.domian.com or a sub directory like www.domain.com/targetcountry and then set this in Google webmaster tool to target the country you want after that you can create country specific content including the country/ city name in the titles, urls, header tags etc and then build links from that geographic location.
