Hi,
Hope you guys will be great. Actually I am new here. So I don't know about its proper use. So my main problem is that.

I am working on different projects. I have multi-country keywords like US, UK, Australia, Canada, & So on. If my keyword is of Australia then after my work on that keyword it got ranked in UK or US. But not in a targeted country. I am very tensed about this.

This is effecting my business so much. Kindly guide me on how can I rank for an exact targeted country.

    Choose your Backlinks wisely, it's impossible to rank an Australian website with using australian backlinks on USA search results, so the problem is where did you created your backlinks !??
    For local ranking i always recommend TO START with Youtube then other social media ( faceboo, twitter = with local tags, pinterest)
    Check you link building strategy that's it

      If you are targeting just one country per website, go to Google Webmaster tools and change the targeted country to the one you want.

      If you are targeting several countries on one site, you need to check what kind of SEO the top serp result inj that country has and beat it. You need, in other words, to work on baclinks. And sites that target the country you are after will have an easier time than you, i.e. you will have to work extra hard.

      You might want to set up subdomains for each country and tell Goolge in webmaster tools that the subdomain 1 competes for country 1 while subdomain 2 competes in country 2.

      Either way, you've got work on getting lits of good backlinks.

    You first need to know which search queries are helping people find your business.
    Optimizing your website will be a much easier task once you know the keywords you're ranking for. You can then focus your efforts on other relevant keywords. For instance, if your bakery shop is already ranking well for [bakery shop Lexington], you can get to work on other search terms. You can divert your attention to ranking for searches like [Lexington bakery] or [best bakery in Lexington]. So at first you need to pickup some right local keywords.

    You could buy niche related expired domains from your target countries, and then recreate the old site. Then create content with country-specific anchors and from that domain link to your target posts.

    Basically it's a PBN, only on a small scale.

      It is the process of optimizing your website so that Google as well as other search engines can easily identify which countries you want to target and which languages you use for business.



      For ex: If your business is based in Canada and you want to sell your products in Australia , Malaysia and Germany. You can leverage international SEO to target these countries.


      You'll get some idea: Structuring a website for international SEO by looking at these images links infected with malware

      This might sound a bit confusing initially as you said you are new. So keep on pushing forward. You will succeed. Amen!

    Well, when you do a keyword research you'd target, say you'd use the Google keyword planner, you can set the country to your target country. Anyway, that is the idea. Whatever tool you are going to use, make sure that it targets the country you want.
