I would say no, but I never thought of the localized marketing... May I ask why you want the site hosted outside the us? Is it possible to move it here to market the particular area you are in?

If you need to be out of the US, I have seen a lot of luck lately with mini sites (5-10 pages) that target niche words as well as areas.

I'm ABSOLUTELY not an expert, but over here in the UK, quite a few people have mentioned to me that, all other things being equal, google.com and google.co.uk give different rankings depending on where the stuff is hosted. In fact it's something of a marketing advantage now. No idea how valid this opinion is, of course.....

"PS: You know something is wrong when one of your blogs outranks your website"

That comment made me laugh...my blog outranks my website too. I have been in business over 4 years now and the Greyt Inspirations (homepage) is pagerank is 4. It took alot of work and time to get there so I am pleased with that - for now.

However, my blog, which I created late last year, is pagerank 5. Never been able to figure that one out... but definetly not complaining.

Thumbs up

The location of your server *might might* but one of the 200 or 300 some odd factors taken into account by google...however, prolly doesn't matter much.

Your time will be better spent making some tools or articles that will be referenced over and over in your industry...like this for the seo field.

Or make some google gadgets.

All the best,
Evan Jerkunica

Pressure, that happened to me as well with the blog - and unlimited access to the website. Outranked because of the constant content update.
