Aftermath of Optimizing Keywords for Specific Regions

Optimizing keywords in specific countries will result to great traffic upsurge. That’s what I’ve noticed in my blog. I tried to optimize short keywords like NLE, MRS, HDB, HBO or SSS in google.com, but it’s quite hard to reach the first page due to some global rivals racing to top for those 3-letter keywords. With the help of Google Trends, I found out that it’s not necessary to optimize one of my keywords in other countries, because that keyword brings great amount of traffic from one specific region only, and it’s the Philippines. Other countries are not searching for NLE, so why not optimize it in google.com.ph only.

As you can see in the screenshot below the keyword trend of NLE comes mostly from the Philippines, and only a few percentage from other countries. So take advantage of some NLE traffic, optimize it in google.com.ph only.

After a series of keyword optimization, I reached the top spot, including my free hosted i.ph sites, respectively garnered the 3rd and 5th spot for the said keyword in Google Philippines’ SERP.

So, will this give me some visitors? Even if I don’t rank on International Datacenters? Obviously, it does. It delivers daily dose of unique visits to my blog. My daily unique visitors increased from 1000 to 2000+ per day. My Adsense earnings increased from $5.00 daily to $15.00 daily.

I know you’re now curious how to optimize your blog post or website in specific regions. It will bring you great traffic, at the same time increase your Adsense earnings by optimizing such keyword with lesser competitors in google.com.ph compared to google.com.

To optimize your keywords in specific regions only, you should build links in Philippine-based websites only.

How will you know if it’s from the Philippines? Even if the site is hosted outside the Philippines and its IP address is located in the US, UK or any other foreign countries.

One factor to determine a Philippine-based website is if its domain is [dot]ph. Hehehe. That’s one obvious element to determine the nationality of a certain website. The other one is the keyword density of the website. If it contains the word “Philippines” or other parts of the Philippines such as Davao, Manila, or Cebu, (or any other words, events, or products that is related in the Philippines) it’s more likely from the Philippines. Other factor is that the site’s traffic is mostly from the Philippines, you can check this data using Alexa.com. The last factor that I know is if the IP address of the user that maintain and do frequent updates to a blog or a website originates from the Philippines. These are just a few factors that will increase your SERP rankings in a specific region such as the Philippines.
