    Hi
    I have a website in french but its not even showing in the first 100 result google.fr , it has a good ranking in google.com and google.co.uk , same for yahoo .
    so i was wondering what i can do to make it ranked for .fr , i was thinking of buying an .fr domain but after i checked my competitors it seems they are all using .com .
    Do the server's country make a big difference on this ?

    I'm also working on a french websites and Yes domain's extension and host country matters a lot.

    My website's .fr and hosted on french servers. I'm in top 100 in google.fr and nowhere near in .com and .co.uk

    Same goes for my other sites which rank higher in .co.uk just because they're hosted in UK

    Offtopic: care to share link building strategies you're using for french sites?

    Thanks imth3one for the reply , i just sent you a PM.


    I think im gonna move the websites to a new french server , but im not sure about the domains as im already getting the traffic to my .com domains + all my competitors have .com :confused:
    Do i need to change something in the templates of the website or in the robots.txt ?

    I'm on the first spots for kw like "make money", "how to make money" in a european google.something (if it was google.es I'd be first for "ganar dinero" or "cómo hacer dinero").

    I have found that domain extension and server location is not a big deal breaker. You can rank very good for whatever kw you want even if you have .com/.org/.netor whatever and your site is hosted in Chicago, IL.

    It probably helps somehow, but it's very limited.

    As far as link building strategies, whatever works with google.com works even better with a regional google.whatever.

    I am always amaized when I see american people ranking sites pretty easily in USA for competitive kw (maybe in USA SEO is not as developped as it is in france), because it is quite hard in France to rank for a mid/high competitive kw (most of websites are well optimized in france)
