Say you want to build a site targeting the German market. Is it better if this site is hosted in Germany or doesn't the location of your host influence your position in google at all? Will a US hosted site do as well as a Germany hosted site?
The reason I'm asking is because I remember reading an article that said your the location of your host DOES have influence when you aim for foreign markets...
Any opinions or experiences?
So its much better to be www.example.de with an American IP address than www.example.com with an American IP address.
Of course, you do also need to have German language content too.
