    I've been thinking of trying to attracting more clients from overseas for my product. The most logical first step for me would be potential clients in Mexico.

    My first step is to get a website created in spanish(which is almost done)
    My question is as follows: Do you have to do anything different as far a link building to rank higher for google and yahoo in Mexico. Do links form dotcomdotmx sites matter the most????

    Also is having the dotcomdotmx (commonly used in mexico) matter to search engines when looking at my site.


    Any help on the subject would be appreciated

    I would try to get some links from their domain extension, it would help a lot and would be a good long term investment. Anchor text the localized keyword and Google will do the rest.

    I would suggest to just get a regular .com seem like the .com.mx is a lot more expensive and you have a better opportunity to have your site rank better if you can get the dot com. I've seen that there is not much people that trust using credit cards or debit cards to pay for things in south america including mexico unless you are selling on el mecado libre spanish version of egay and even then there is still a lot of corruption I got a url link viajesguanajuato(dot)com and still get more conversions from us traffic than from mexico and every time I tell people I have a site its just much more easier for them to see that I have a dot com. Hope this helps
    Regards
    Suave

    c,o,m is easily the best bet, as most people prefer the same.

    Hello. I just try to get a lot of links, when google crawls it detects the language so if it's spanish you will get indexed for google spain/mexico/etc...
    But if you can get one or two high autority link from mexican blogs ;)

    I say C,O,M > ccTLD, for any country of the world. google likes generic more.

    Yes, It works. I've proven it my self. You'll easily rank for certain local keyword with a couple of backlinks from local domain extension
