  • Ranu Jain: - Buying a country-specific domain is always a good idea. If you know your target audience, a country-specific domain extension is your best bet.

    - Google Webmaster Tool, a free tool will be very helpful to a blogger or webmaster seeking country-specific traffic. You can set which country your website is targeted to, and this in turn helps you to get traffic from your targeted country.

    - You can Log in and verify your website in Google Webmaster Tool, and under Configurations > Settings you can specify which country you wish to target.

    - If your target audience is in India, try to get more backlinks from India based websites. ;

    - You can drive country-based backlinks by guest blogging opportunites and blog commenting. ;

    - If you are targeting two countries with your domain, add the country’s name in your posts’ meta titles and descriptions. This will give a clear signal to the country you are targeting.

    - Claim your business in Google Places, and add all related information such as address, phone number, etc.  ;This will help Google to determine the business location of your business.

    - Find keywords which are popular with the audience in your target country and craft a content strategy based on that. ;
