    Hi All,

    first of all I wish that everything is going well with you, as a SEO newbie I wanna know how to target a country in SEO, let's be more clear, my friend is living in Spain he created a website and he wants me to help him in optimizing his website to appear in the first page results on Google Spain, I am living in Egypt, I don't know how to target it

    Regards

    Getting backlinks from spanish domains will help and also if you are using google webmaster tools you can set the targeted audience from there.

    I agree with midnight_focus that you need to generate backlinks from Spanish domain and also from your related niche.

    You need the TLD to be .es, or a generic top level domain that is geo targeted to Spain in google web master tools; of course using Spanish content on the site is must.

    in my experience getting back links from country specific domains makes no difference.
