    I'm trying to rank on US and UK searches this time, I think I would get more sales thru it. How should I do it?

    Having your site hosted in the UK or US would help with that, because then the search engines would recognise your site as being from the respective country. For the UK you could also get a co.uk domain, because again the search engines would recognise a co.uk site as being from the UK, perhaps you could get a .us for the US.

    The main key factor is the your hosting. A US-based IP is giving the Geo targeting system information that your site is a US site..make your targeted country USA instead of other in webmaster tool...

    My site is hosted in US however, I got .asia extension. With this, I'm not sure if there's a chance I can get there. Any suggestion?

    As per my opinion, you should go through using US based free classified ads and submit your site at US directories to drive traffic from US.

    Hi you need to get some Good local back links for your targeted keywords for getting ranking in Google.com and in Google.co.uk list your website with local business directory, do the social media activities and create the content and post in relevant blogs and on other platform and try to get back links from there. It will help you lots for getting higher ranking.

    You can hire someone to do SEO and other promotions for you.

    Yes that would help you have a local impact. But having a .co.uk or .us extensions doesn't really have an impact on how you would rank in the global searches.

    Yes you should also see this too. But like extensions it does only minimum impact on the searches.

    I suggest to get a .com since it's the most common extension used and most of the people know it.

    Geotargeting factors:
    1. Use of a ccTLD (Recommended)
    2. Server location (Search engine take it as a hint)
    3. Other signals (Address, Site linking from the particular region, local search, Phone, Google business places)

    Recommended Site Structured:

    2. example.com/uk (Setting in webmaster)
    3. example.co.uk

    #1 could be helpful as it says that under the UK domain is your subdomain which is the name of your business website - telling that it is targeted for UK searches and result.
    #2 is not that a good idea as you are just showing a separate folder within your website for UK - not really saying / separating it for UK results
    #3 could be like #1 but the fact s it is also country-targeted domain name.

    Target Google.com and build links at U.S sites only not on local sites or other country sites. This activity gives you rank in US search engine on your targeted keywords.
