    Hi, looks like the German (& almost all western european contries like frenc ..) market is pretty contrary to the U.S. market. There are still almost untapped niches with good high traffic/low comp keywords. Unfortunately it looks quite hard to find an reliable and affordable linkbuilder who offers strong links from german or french sites. Any idea or recommendation how to deal with that situation ?

    I rank a lot of sites in both of these countries using the same link building techniques as I do for my US and UK sites.

    I don't think it is that important to get geo related links, I think having proper content (well written german/french) is far more important.

    pathard- so you rank your french/german sites with links coming from US and UK sites soley or do you throw a few geo related links into the mix?
    Also having the whole article/post written in the targeted language instead of just the anchortext looks more solid.
    Thanks for these interesting tips

    Sorry should have made that clearer, I build links just like I would for UK and US sites, depending on the project I also try and find some geo specific social bookmarking sites, although this is usually for gaining more traffic.

    Actually, OP and I are on the same page here. Mine is CPA in the trading niche and looking to target Germany and France. I am currently getting around with the domain name and web hosting account for the site. I also plan on using Facebook PPC after driving enough organic traffic to the site.
