Geo-Targeting is when you tend to rank your keywords on a certain local area example in Australia for google.com.au You do this by getting links from that specific area in order to increase you chance to rank on SERP.

I was always interested in the influence of the location. So I've learnt a lot from here. Thanks!

Geo targeting in geomarketing and internet marketing is the method of determining the geolocation (the physical location) of a website visitor and delivering different content to that visitor based on his or her location, such as country, region/state, city, metro code/zip code, organization, Internet Protocol (IP) address, ISP or other criteria.

Ya it matters a lot....If the link .co.in opens then most of the result will be from the India sub region only!!!!IF there is any country's domain end then the most of the results are from there only but this is not the case with .com!!!

Hello,


If you are looking for result regarding particular geographical area it is better to use it in that way like .uk, but if you are looking for complete result regardless any particular area try.com .
