    Hello Guys and girls


    i need your opinion, i am in the process of targeting local sites. the Hosting offers in my country are far from the best and a mission to get setup. I have to fill in 12 forms and fax for each site and open a account for each site. Then in 7 working days you might get contacted.:261:

    its mixed up but anyway i need to know how big of deal is the local hosting when targeting local search only?


    Would prefer to host it on US servers but wouldn't want to handicap my local seo. So in your experiences does it really matter?

    I will be using local domains.


    Has anyone tried this? or is it a bad bad idea?


    Thank you for your answers:)

    Well, I am based in the UK, targeting the UK, with a website on a US server.
    So in my personal experience, no it doesn't matter.

    But then again, I assume it may depend on the level of competition in the niche you are promoting.

    Speed of deliver is a consideration. So proximity of the server to your customers is important.

    Hope this helps.
