    Is there any tips doing SEO when targeting a local keyword such as: "Bookstore New York".

    Should I use the same techniques as for any other keywords?

    What about if I am targeting a french business...Do I need to get backlinks from french websites?

    J0kerz,

    To rank in the main part of the page, the exact same rules apply.

    However a big part of local search is the small map they gets displayed when you search for something like "bookstore new york" or "dentist in london"

    If you are trying to rank a business then they key to getting to number 1 in the map is not backlinks but rather citations of the full contact details for the business.

    You need to google local seo really theres quite a lot to learn! But if I had to say one thing, submit the businesses address to directories.

    Theres a thread in the buy/sell section. The users name is Scuba something. But offers a great video on how to rank locally in less than 24 hours.
