    Try a thing called citations or otherwise know as Local directory submissions and possibly a Google places listing if you are directly targeting your local keywords.

    The keyword isn't the only factor here, for ranking high locally try getting some quality backlinks from sites in your country, that should help.

    Ranking depends to a great extent on the niche as well as keyword competition.The problem that you are facing might be due to the reason that the Local competition is more as compared to the global i.e you have lots of other local strong aged authority sites fighting for the same niche and for the same keywords and as their back links are more trusted in Google hence it will take some time for you site's SERP to rise.
    I will suggest you to continue your link building I am sure you will get the SERP to rise.

    My competition is #1 global and local I am #2 global for this keyword. For different keywords (nearly 10 of them) I am #1, unfortunately only global, local its far far away. I was thinking that my directory backlinks are from different country and now I know that true. Is there (a must) something important to do if we speak about local? How did you guys ranging yours keyword locally? or there is no secret at all just directory local phone numbers?

    using citations which is your whole company name address and phone number and using that exactly across youtube vids your local losting and your website

    then just build more links.

    to be honest it s normnally exactly the opposite that happens. you get local terms easy and globals is difficult

    just keep doing consistent link building

    See, every keyword has local and global significance...

    First you have to decide whether local audience is your main focus or global audience.

    Depending upon your choice choose your keywords and optimize it in respective way.
