What if You Need to Rank in Other Countries?

This is where the complicated world of SEO gets even more complicated. If you want to spread your wings and gain an audience in foreign countries, you are now going to have to start ranking well in their respective search engines as well. Visit our blog.

Unfortunately, this is not going to be as simple as having somebody translate your keywords into the chosen language of that country and using them. The keywords you are ranking for in your home country will have been researched to see how competitive they are and whether you had a good chance of ranking for them against the current competition.

Firstly, a simple translation of words does not always carry over the same meaning in two different languages. You will need transcreation services to first establish whether the keywords are indeed the correct interpretation for use as your keywords abroad.

Secondly, you have not had an SEO specialist research and verify that the new keywords even offer you a good chance of ranking in your new country. You will now need an SEO expert to perform this verification service for you.
