    So there's a keyword that I want to rank for and it's got 40,500 searches in India per month. Basically, I've never tried to rank a site for a country overseas (I'm in the U.S.) and frankly I'm not quite sure how to do it. There might be a few questions so stay with me :D

    There is an exact domain match for the keyword with the TLD ".in" which is the TLD for India. I don't think it takes a genius, but just to be sure I should go with that right?

    After domain registration, how would I rank in Google India? Would the Indian TLD be enough for Google to know, "Oh this site belongs in India"? Would I just do regular SEO because pretty much English is the spoken language over there so I would suppose every website in English would apply as a good place to leave my backlink?

    Finally, what about Indian hosting? Would it help SEO-wise to host my site with an Indian hosting company? If so, any recommendations?

    I've really never done this so any information you could provide, including extra would really be worth it. I think I can rank this site pretty easily because none of the competition seems to be optimizing their sites for this keyword.

    Thanks for all the help!

    Charlie, you should buy the domain name with exact match having ".in" TLD, also you need not to host this site in india, not necessary. Use google analytics and set the profile information as an indian.

    Now what ever backlinks you make will effect your SERP positions mainly in google.in . If you need some good results in quick time you can have to do the following

    1) Open Link Wheel Pyramid
    2) High Profile backlinks from PR 3+ forums
    3) Backlinks from High PR urls (not domains) , if they are from indian domains and indian ips than it wil be gr8
    4) Blast your Link Wheel, High Profile backlinks aand High PR backlink urls with scrapebox comment poster.

    You will get best results in 1 - 2 months max.

    Thanks so much for the info! I'll definitely do all that and hopefully get a good handle on this! It's a really good keyword with a lot of searches and the competition isn't tough so I'm excited :D

    buy exact keyword .com domain , .in only helps when people select show pages from india,
    in webmasters tools target country india.

    buy .in domain and lots a link from .in domains and site hosted in india while doing traditional link building,u will rank within no times as there will be small to no competition at all .same thing goes for every keyword for every country.

    and fyi indian traffic has very little to no value,you will have more earnings if you a promote a keyword with 3000 exact searches in US.

    But if my entire audience was in India wouldn't it make sense to have a ".in" TLD?

    For starters make sure you are hosting it in India that will indicate to google that you site is located there and will rank there much better.
