5. Consider Counter’s TLD
As we all know very well .com domain extension is most popular worldwide, but we can’t deny the importance of country code TLDs (ccTLDs), especially in the Asian region.
For some reason, ccTLD for the Pakistani (.pk) gets good as compared to .com or other domain extensions while targeting a local audience. If you want to target a particular Pakistani audience, you can buy .pk domain/.com.pk domain. These 2 domain options are one of the top-rated domain extensions to target local Pakistan online audiences.
ccTLDs help to build customer trust because online users prefer to make purchases from local and familiar brands rather than foreign brands – because they don’t know about the brand quality and standers.
It means the country’s TLD increases its brand value and customer trust, especially in the Asian region.
6. Use Alternative Keywords
