    Regular tactics improve my positions in .com, but in local extensions, such as com.au or com.sg - I'm not even in top 25. How to rank in G local extensions? Is there a special term for this kind of SEO?

    Go to google webmaster tools and select your preferred country.

    Thank you Longover! But what if I target more than one country?

    Dannah, I have just had a company contact me with a .eu domain asking me to rank them in several european countries. My advice is that it is easier to build sites with country specific extensions ie; .co.uk for the UK - .fr for France and use these sites to rank in specific countries through google webmaster tools.

    I don't think that you can rank a .com .net or .org TLD's in numerous countries. I also would appreciate comments on this.

    Sure you can, let's see...

    I've searched for "penny stocks trading" (just for example, as I think it is pretty competitive keyword). I did my search in .com, co.uk and com.sg (of the same famous SE).

    And I found out that 6 out of 10 results (all are .com) came up in all 3 searches.

    I think that this shows that it is possible to rank well in more that one countries.
    What do you think?
