Question: I work for Mobile Marketing company in Ireland – our main business is achieved via the onine medium! We are succcessful in the Irish market – but are struggling in the European Markets to gain online Views – Appart fromt he top 10 tips you have given – can you recommend any other tools or tasks that might help us grow into these markets, please?
Answer: The only big advice I would give that is counterintuitive is hosting. In the United States, Google rewards companies that host INSIDE the United States. So a Canadian company that has 99% USA customers, should choose a USA-based Webhost. Use a site like Woorank.com to find out where a server is located.
So for an Irish company you might want TWO websites – one HOSTED in Ireland, and one HOSTED in the USA. Optimize each of them of course of local search terms. But the hosting really does matter; I have seen this with many Canadian clients.
