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 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!
