    I need suggestions on getting a domain to target Spain audience. The EMD which i have chosen is not available for .com but is available for .es and .net.

    Thanks!!

    Go for the .es.

    .es will rank better in Spain, although you can rank other TLD's as well.

    If you want to use or have Google Webmaster Tools, then set the location of the domain as Spain.
    If not, host the site in the target location.

    Good luck.

    .es and set it up as a targeted country in your webmaster tools, works great for me

    As far as I know, I wont have the option to choose the target county in the .es domain and webmaster will automatically target Spain users.

    Thanks everyone!! Going for .es Espania :)

    I have great results when my TLD is for the specific contry I aim for. It will rank faster and with less money spent.

    You might find that you'll do better if the site is hosted in Spain as well. I've seen google make changes in results depending on what country I've hosted some of my sites.
