Have a couple questions for the pros. I used to be heavy into IM and have many sites still hanging around out there that have generated 3 nice checks this year and I haven't even touched those sites in a couple of years. The check I got in the mail yesterday from old Clickbank has pushed me over the edge to dust off my keyboard and get back to work. While researching all of the ideas here I have come up with my niche. It targets Canada. My first question of this thread is... Can a .com outrank a .ca site? If so, is being US based gonna keep me chasing my tail trying to outrank those .ca sites that are Canadian based? Can a US based person purchase a .ca domain name and if so, is that gonna affect rankings? I think you get the jist of the questions... any thoughts here would be appreciated. I'm gonna have more but this is first and foremost to measure validity.
