    If you are targeting a specific country, then make use of the country code TLD of your targeted country. This gives you better rankings in your preferred target location. However, if you do target several countries, using a country code TLD is not advisable; instead, use a generic TLD such as .com, .net, or .org which does not have any country associated with it. Also, remember that search location can influence ranking results, as observed above.

    To increase your ranking success and to have an easier path to Google’s first page, it is suggested that you host your website in the same country that you are targeting.

    To increase relevance in your preferred/targeted location, it is suggested to have your registrant address in the same location as your targeted country. This is a useful piece of information that Google uses to determine if your website is doing business or being registered in that specific location.

    There are a lot of "geo-related" factors observed by the SEO community in Google. However (except from the above list), they have not been proven to really be a significant factor.

    1. Regional Listings in Yahoo directory.

    2. Regional Listings in DMOZ.

    3. The nature of the content.

    4. The nature of back links and external links.

    5. Geographic targeting in Google Webmaster Tools.

    Location based domains work best if the visitors to the websites are expected to be members of the local population. The benefit of using a location based domain is that people in your area will easily identify with the website when they see the name of the area in the domain.

    If you are about to target some specific country only then go for Geo based TLDs, otherwise you will have a hard time ranking it to globally.

    A relatively big factor is where your backlinks are coming from.
