    I have a question. I want to rank a .com website in another country.

    So would it be possible to make backlinks on global sites, and use the keyword as my anchor text?

    Like, if i was trying to rank in india using a .com domain could I go to ezinearticles.com and write a article and use my keyword as the anchor text and still get backlinks?

    Would these backlinks count? Like are they more stronger than a .in backlink?

    Grab a .in domain and it will be a piece of cake

    A .com is a universal gTLD (Generic Top Level Domain), meaning it's for those that want to have a presence on the Internet targeting the entire Globe, or at least for the moment primarily English-speaking countries and such.

    As mentioned above, if you want to target a specific country, then you'll want to get a ccTLD (country code Top Level Domain), so a .in would be ideal. On the other hand, you can always use code, for example the Meta Tags and perhaps even a PHP File, on your website to only allow visitors from a specific country as well as sign up for a Google's Webmaster Account. As for your Backlinks, I wouldn't of thought it would make a huge difference.

    Hello , no problem at all with the .com domain. I have a .com that ranks high in a specific google. Didn''t make any difference to local extensions.

    Google gives you a bit of a boost locally (drowns you globally) if you choose a local domain but not a huge one.
    You shouldn't have any real issues
