    How exactly does one currently go about ranking a keyword for a specific country? Like say I wanted rank a movie download keyword, but then I especially wanted this keyword to rank high in the country of Spain, how would I go about that? Thanks

    use the countries local language.
    use local domain if available.
    use local based server for hosting.
    use local social bookmarking.
    set google analytics to target the countries visitors.

    Page content should match the language, or have multilingual functionality. Using a local domain & hosting server, also local social bookmarking would definitely help.

    get a .es extension
    if you can't get a .es extension, get another extension, and set it to target spain within webmaster tools

    I've seen the best results by using local language everywhere. Not just on your money site but on you tier1-tier3 also. It makes much more sense if your whole article is in spanish rather than just your anchor text of the link.

    So in the google keyword tool if i filter for say Country: France and Language: French and I do a search for something like Iron Man 3. Those results for just "Iron Man 3" are really being searched for in France? Even though those words in that search are technically in english? So to rank that keyword in France I really would just make the anchor text "Iron Man 3" and not "l'homme de fer 3" ? But I'm assuming I would make all the rest of the content in French and get backlinks from French domains and I should be able to rank ?

    yes.

    if there are more searches for "Iron Man 3" than "l'homme de fer 3" then try to rank for the english KW, but the rest of the page/website should be in french.
    Try to get as much BL from same langage websites.
    Regarding local TLD, I can't see any difference with a .com but seems it's just me :)

    You want to know how many people search for a certain movie title in a certain country, you could do the following:

    Open AdWords Keyword Research Tool
    Uncheck Broad and Check Exact in the leftside panel
    Choose France in Country and French in Language
    Now search for the certain movie title of your desire
    Look at the number of searches under "Local" and not "Global".

    I have been trying to backlink a blog for several French keywords in Google of France, but it seems to be stuck at around page 5-7 for my bigger keywords. I'm not really sure what I should do at this point, this is kind of new to me. Is the most important thing to get backlinks from other French text websites to rank higher? Like for some of these keywords I'm aiming for they are really low competition, and there are YouTube videos/blogs in the first 3 spots for some keywords and there're ranking with no backlinks at all, some even without any social stuff really either.

    Can anyone help me out with what strategies I should follow to push this site up in the France search engine? Or is there a good service out there I could just pay for to help me out with this ?
