How can I target specific country for backlinks?

The title said it all. I other words, I want to target France in this case. How do I setup the GSA SER settings to target ONLY France backlinks beside choosing the SE and set my content to French?

I already have EMD domain related to my niche and contains my targeting keyword inside the domain in France, but it's with .net extension not .fr , do this will impact on my rank on Google later?

I read on BHW, we need to fill "!.fr" variable on GSA options at "skip sites contains this words in URL/Domain" to get France backlinks only. Is that true? 

PS: @s4nt0s can you help me for this case a little bit mate? I appreciate it your help guys.


  • anyone can help me? No body can answer my question here? @Sven maybe?
  • on the options tabs you can select countries that you don't want to submit to.  The option for this is towards the bottom of the page.

    Yes, what you read on BHW is correect. You add !.fr and any other French TLDs in a line (no commas) and tick the box that's says skip sites. I know it sounds wrong but the ! makes it the opposite so you only get .fr domains.

    I do this with a variety of extensions ie. !.edu !.gov !.org ! ! etc etc Obviously the LPM will go down but you will get the locale you want. I recommend this for T1 or money site links, high PR, low OBL then change it up every few days so you're not just getting PR4+ .fr domains, a little diversity ie. PR1 and PR0 will be good.
