During my recent keyword searches I started to play around with Google Trends and looked at websites in UK, Singapore and Thailand. Apparently the CPC is higher in other countries. This got me thinking, "Self, If I'm going to work my ass off to rank well in the US and get less money, why not just target other countries too." I'd appreciate input for the following questions; 1) Are they same SEO techniques applicable in other countries or are there certain things that work best in a specific country? 2) Besides this forum, are they are any other reputable resources I can use or buy to learn how to target specific countries? 3) Is there any other tool available besides Google Insights that can show me the most popular search terms. 4) Is there much difference in ranking using a .Com domain vs. the CC TLD? Thanks.
