local seo vs international seo

Hello,

As we know that google always redirects to its localized page for different regions. My question is actually about understanding my competitors.

For eg: someone search for jobs in google and google shows all local websites for that particular region which means that if someone create a jobs website will only have its local competitors.

Similarly, I want to create a website playgames on my local TLD and select my local target traffic in google webmasters tools. Google Adwords keyword tool shows these results.


Keyword play games

Competition Low

Global Monthly Searches 11,100,000

Local Monthly Searches 823,000


There are too many similar websites. In this case how will i compete with others & why adwords shows that competition is low?

The keyword "play games" is not local keyword it is a global keyword.. if you are using local keyword then there must be name of a location.

And yes, this would be very effective and less competitive too if you give some time in researching keywords.

Hi,

Now google focused on localization. So be careful during optimization.

There are other ways to compete, unless you're only focus on search engine results.
By promoting via social media or offline advertising or other traditional ads, your business can step ahead from your competitors

first of all adword is not exact or accurate so don't depend on it ..

and to compete in this situation purchase niche domain for your website .. google do promote niche domains at its best so that is one solution here ..

you can also do local listing in google webmaster and if you are from us than you can also do listing in bing also ..

this are 2 best way for you .. hope that will help you brother ..

Niche domain? Do you means Domain Name based on Keyword ?
