    I have a site that is optimized for the local Google in my contry.

    Will it be benefitial to my site to use foregin (english) backlinks? I will still use keywords in my language.

    I cannot answer your question to the point but I once came across a site that ranked number 1 in Google with almost all its back links from foreign sites. So I guess Google will give credit to them regardless of where they come from.

    But yes, local back links will definitely make you rank higher in local searches. I have seen site optimized for the U.S. rank 1 or two in the U.S. serp's but the same sites go down to 5 or 6 in other countries.
