    I think this may be more to the point - combined with a small of number of backlinks from an Indian site perhaps.
    Which makes it less of an issue of it doing well in google.co.in, and more that it's just not doing well in google.com

    I think it's the backlinks from sites being hosted in India and also check whether you are in top in some other countries like UK... if not..

    These SEO specialists may have linked your site from their individual sites...

    Well, even if you hire for an SEO from other countries, you could climb up to the top of google search engine to the geo-location you want to be, just instruct your SEO agent to promote your site to the google country of your choice.

    I doubt google has information to track where the link has been placed from in a web directory .. so guys .. this is superficial - to a large extent to state that this is because links were placed from a country. What is however possible is that links have been made in sites and directories in India - which may lead Google to deduce that the link popularity is more in India.
    How many days since the whole list that you provided got worked and the time you see the results, often the result of any SEO takes a few weeks / months to reflect properly. If you have got multiple backlinks with this excercise, I am sure it would help you in future.
    Thanks,
    GS

    Easy everyone... the obvious answer to this is that he does in fact have links from India.

    These India SEOs more than likely have a number of their own india sites, filled with all kinds of India based content and other sites. With every client they get, they add them as a link, and voila, by association, you must be an India resource.

    Someone suggested not to hire India SEOs. It is true that their methods are most of the time straight out of 2005 and will do more harm than good. If you do hire India workers a few tips:

    - Make them work through your own Windows Terminal Server system that has a North American IP
    - Give them SPECIFIC tasks to complete. They will do the work they are told to do and that is it.
    - Monitor them through your terminal server. It's a good idea to install some kind of key tracker because then you can see just how much work was really completed.
    - Pay per task, not by the hour. There are a myriad of issues that will perpetually arise if they paid hourly, everything from computer troubles, to connection issues, to yellow fever.

    Alternatively, if you want to get something out of this, maybe you need to offer something in India now to get your moneys worth for that #1 in Google India. ;)

    I would also like to have everyone please note that he didn't have to be hosted in India to be #1 in Google India.

    Can you all please stop thinking you need to host in a particular country to rank for that country. This is the stupidest myth that has somehow picked up momentum over the last year.

    I think that's not right to blame any particular country SEOs. Ok might be you are right that Indian SEO's has old methods and they are not well as other. But i wud not blame them.

    I wud blame those who hire Indian SEO's just for money. They want to save their money and don't think that they are doing right or wrong. When they got bad results then they say Indain SEOs have done this. I can't tolerate that bcoz i am also from India.

    So i wud say don't blame them. If you wanna blame someone then blame those who hire them just for save their money.

    But for ur kind information i wanna tell you indian SEO's have enough mind to go through with Advanced SEO's but they charge high and People from outer countries always select inexperience SEO's for the shake of money. I have seen many examples. So plz don't underestimate anyone..............

    I wud straightly blame those who do compromise with inexperience SEO's just for shake of money........................

    It certainly isn't necessary - however, if you know that you want to target a specific country, it is one of the details that can give you a bit of help - from the official google blog


    "Does location of server matter? I use a .com domain but my content is for customers in the UK.


    In our understanding of web content, Google considers both the IP address and the top-level domain (e.g. .com, .co.uk). Because we attempt to serve geographically relevant content, we factor domains that have a regional significance. For example, ".co.uk " domains are likely very relevant for user queries originating from the UK. In the absence of a significant top-level domain, we often use the web server's IP address as an added hint in our understanding of content."

    That's what you get for hiring an Seo firm in the first place. If your site is worth ranking high in Google, it will get ranked high, you don't need an seo firm to put it there, that's gaming the system and it will catch up to you one day.

    If the backlinks for your site comes from Indian sites then that will be the reason.

    With seeing the the inlinks or the outlinks, it's only possible to specualte to the causes. But I think that you hit on something by with 'methods straight out of 2005".

    Hello,
    I'm 100% sure your backlinks are from IP hosting in India. Try to get more links for USA hostings ip or setup your geolocation to USA or your country in Google webmaster tool :)

    Google is good but I don't think they can tell who submitted to each directory for you.

    What is your traffic like? If this is a new or low traffic site it could be tops in India because that is the only place you are getting traffic (the 5 dudes sitting around, visiting your site and building links).

    My guess is you have the #1 site in India because the 5 guys sitting arounding building links make you the most popular site in India for your niche. This could explain why google thinks Indians love your site.
