If one is trying to rank in a regional Google, do we really know how much links from within that region/country matter?
They matter. I've got a .com that's hosted on a Florida server but 90% of it's links are from UK. It ranks very well in Google UK but not quite so good on Google US.
In fact, doing a search on Google UK while clicking the "pages from UK" radio button still brings up my .com, even though it's hosted on a US IP.
