There are some countries that have low Adsense CPc and CTr rates while some are known to be one of the highest Adsense paying countries with high CPc and Ctr rates.

How would you feel when you post articles relating to them and they end up not clicking or paying a visit to your blog due to the fact that they are suffering from poor internet connection Or possibly over click on your ads displaying on your website which may lead to your account been disapproved or banned by Google?
You feel bad right?

Having said much, let’s now look at the various ways of driving specific country traffic to your blog
How To Drive Country Specific Website Traffic To Your Blog

If you plan on making India your blog target ,you should go for a .in or .co extension.
That is to say your blog domain should be look like
‘www.howtosguide.in’ or ‘www.howtosguide.co’
Also the domain .NG and. com.ng are the best options for those who wish to make Nigeria as their blog target.
Domain extensions like. com and. org rank high on Search engines but then doesn’t have a specific target.
Google webmaster tool allows you set which country you wish to make your blog target and helps you drive traffic from such countries to your blog
This is one tool that you should be making use of if you wish to target a specific country audience for your website.
Every country is known for a particular keyword. If you blog about iPhones and Mobile gadgets, then I suggest you make countries like USA and UK your blog target.
Visit the Google trends page online, click on any country that you wish to make your blog target ( like let’s say India) , find out what keywords or topics are trending, write relevant articles about them and be sure to use proper keywords in your Blog post.
This way you would be able to get more traffic from the specific country of your choice
Submit to web directories
There are a lot of web directories and business places online for you to register and submit details of your blog or business to.
Also do well to include your blog details on all social media accounts so as to help you get more local citations
Content Level Strategy
The kind of content you post on your blog would determine the kind of visitors you’ get on your blog.
If you wish to make a country your blog target, try as much as possible to write your articles in language that are easily understood by your target audience or probably get hire authors and writers to do that for you
If you wish to make a country your specific target audience, it would only be appropriate for you to host your blog on the country’s host server.
