Hi Lyceum.

Yes, local SEO also works for international businesses. The key is simply to target your immediate region -- or to choose a not-so-immediate region to target -- as opposed to attempting to target an entire country or locale.

For instance, a small business in London might begin with "Westminster florists" as opposed to "London florists," but they certainly wouldn't normally target "florists in England," as that's too large a region to be effective.

Note: I know nothing about England or its regions, so please forgive if the above was a silly targeting example.

Sorry for the delay in my response. I do wish this site automatically subscribed authors to their article comments. Or if there's an option for that, I haven't run across it. :)

Oh, jeepers. I am sucking so totally bad at responding in a timely manner. Sorry. ;(

I'm not quite sure what you're asking. Determining the top sites/directories we submit each client site to? If so, a combination of Google (really), Alexa, and a PR checker (prchecker.info).

Thank you again, Shawn. ;) I appreciate your post on my own blog on this article... and you're absolutely right.

Take care.

Harmony,

Really solid post on a topic I'm betting plenty of online business owners and a fair number of brick and mortar business operators never seem to think about. Location is important, not just because of the emphasis on doing business locally but also because of the growing prevalence of local search. Thanks!
