Host your website in the country you’re targeting. This will serve as a geo-targeting signal for the search engines, and will also mean faster page loading times for your website visitors. Did you know that a website hosted in the Netherlands can take on average 1.4 seconds to load in that country, but 10 seconds to load in China? Far too slow! Faaar tooooo slooooow… *laughs* See what I did there? Faster page loading times are not only good for user experience but also SEO, as page speed is a positive search engine ranking factor.
