    Not directly. If the site will be slow (due to remote location), your bounce rate will increase, and you'll go down in SERPs.

    If Server is Cheap, Loading Time Too Much..Than Yes. Otherwise I don't THink Much Impact of a Server on SEO.

    It isnt depend on location. Main factors : ping (delay) + overall quality of connection (1mpbs,10mpbs,100mbps,1gbps) for high load traffic

    For local SEO... I say yes. I haven't tested lately, but about a year ago I used a Canadian hosting company that was fantastic but my sites took a lot more work to rank. i switched to a USA hosting company and things got easier.

    Again, this is for local (e.g. Atlanta plumbers)... for what it's worth.

    Locally, I couldn't imagine it having much to do with anything. As far as load time goes YES. It could hurt you. You get what you pay for.

    Not really, you can specify on webmasters what geographic location you would like to target.
