A HighRankings Forum thread asks if it is possible to rank number one in Google.ca and Google.com, if the site is using a .ca ccTLD and is hosted in Canada. As you can see, the question has a lot of variables. It is also dependent on the keyword. For example, I hope I can rank well in any Google regional flavored search engine for my company name, RustyBrick. But to rank well for a more generic keyword would be much harder.
I felt I would poll you guys and see what you had to say. Now, like I said, the variables are important, so let's set them here.
The condition is as follows. You have a site hosting in the US, it is on a .com TLD, and you want to rank well for a generic keyword (not your company name). Can you rank well in both Google.com and a regional flavored Google?
Please take the poll and pass it on to a friend.
