    I want to increase my site rankings in United Arab Emirates as much of my business is based from there.

    How can I do this? My site is hosted in the UK

    Any tips?

    SEO has no geographical boundaries. It is the keyword that are to be optimized for ranking. If you're concerned about UAE SE rankings, then optimize your site for geo-specific (like UAE, Dubai etc.,) keywords that can go along with the main product/content keyword of the website. submit your site to geographical specific search engines.

    Well, in this case, all you need is optimizing your site for the keyword that you want to rank for.

    No Geography or History here. Regular SEO will do and if you can get the position 10 or less in Big G (US), naturally you'll have better position in Big G (UAE).

    My 2 cents:

    To tell the Search Engines the ?country? your website is most relavent to
    a) Have a top-level domain (TLD) for the country like .co.uk
    b) Get the tld/ site hosted/ on a nameserver in the targeted country

    Placing your local business address at the footer of your site can certainly assist Google in determining the location of your website.

    Under the ?Set geographic target? option in your Google Webmaster Tools account, choose ?associate a geographic location with this site? and pick the preferred country for your website to geo-target.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your time. I understand the points you make. However I cannot change the host or google geographical location as I sell my product worldwide. However I have researched and found a great deal of business is avaible in UAE and I am missing out.

    I put this down to my site appearing on page 3.

    I need to find a way to increase the SERPS for my .com site in UAE without effecting my other country rankings
