    Local SEO definitely helps if you have plans to get your business noticed in local areas as it doesn't apply to whole Europe. If you wanna go local then you will need to get your site listed on local citation businesses. Also, directory submission is a thing of the past and will only hamper your site.

    If you can get listed on a smaller regional or local website directory, it will help your search engine placement on all of the major search engines by increasing your "popularity" (the number and quality of links to your site). Some local directories provide direct links to websites listed, while others use scripts to track clicks on the sites listed. If the directory is using a script, your listing in that directory will have little impact on your ranking in search engines that factor in popularity. Still, that link may drive a few visitors.

    You will also need to add local business keywords to your marketing plan to rank for those keywords. For eg. SEO in france etc.

    Of course this is required for search in local engines/directories. Contact or gather information about this country's local directories like yellow pages etc. and do registered for better business.

    It obviously makes sense to get listed on local directories, as you do not customers from other part of the world right? This is where local SEO comes into practice. Make sure to read more about local citations.
