    Ok, so obviously a lot of CPA offers pay more for countries outside of the US, but how would you go about finding these people from, let's say Australia or France or Pakistan? Any ideas?

    Then you could scrape these users and go after them with your specially tailored, high paying offers.

    I guess I could pay for advertising and target by country, but i'd like to test first on people I can find for free. Any ideas?
    What ya'll think?

    There are spy tools out there that will help you see where your competitors are getting their traffic from ;)

    I've found the best way to go about this is to use a proxy to pretend like you live there :) Engrossing yourself in the culture, keywords, and common themes will make you most successful in a new market!

    Here's an idea:

    * Go to Alexa
    * You're looking for Top Sites by Country (/topsites/countries)
    * Select the country you're interested in
    * The top sites for that country will typically be G00gle, Y0uTube, Yah00 and a couple of adult sites
    * After that, you'll start getting ultra-local sites visited by the audience you are looking for
    * Visit those sites, which in turn will lead you to local social networks, local advertisers etc...

    Good luck.

    Dhispana's tip is a good one ;)

    Also, it helps a lot to have a localized domain name when you're looking for international traffic. If going for France or Italy, make sure you nab the .FR or .IT versions, they'll provide you a great boost in localized search.

    Alexa is a good way to know the traffic in different countries. There are also other spy tools that you could use out there. Just do a little googling.
