I am planning to create several local, information-based, websites and would need some guidance in regards to ranking. I have already done my research, and the competition is rather low. What I would like to know is whether I would need a local domain to rank easier and faster in local searches. Any other website is also welcomed since I am still rather new to ranking and monetizing websites. And while I'm at it, I would also need some suggestions for an affordable webhost. I considered GoDaddy, but have seen a lot of bad reviews regarding the uptime and support.
