    Hi guys,

    Sorry if this question is too generic.

    My site is on page one in the US, page two in the UK and not ranked at all in Australia, Canada and Ireland. However, my main competitor is at the top of page one in all English speaking countries for the same key phrase. I have more back links than him, my domain name contains the full key phrase whereas his domain name only contains half the key phrase. My domain is also older. Also his site does not seem to be set up as well as mine for the key phrase SEO wise. The only advantage I can see he has is that he has a lot more content than I do.

    I don't want to take him down btw, good luck to him, I just want to be up there in the top three with him.

    Are there any factors I should take into account when trying to rank in multiple countries that share the same language?

    Thank you kindly in advance for your time,

    James :)

    And how are you doing in the backlink war against him ? Contextual links, geo specific links, geo targeted anchor text. Too many reasons really but usually comes back to backlinks particularly if his site doesnt look all that.

    Backlinks and content may cause that.
