    Hi,
    I am trying to rank my .com site for google.ca and not google.com. Most of the traffic should come from .ca as they are local keywords. I host with hostgator and my site is .com
    I am targeting 6 different keywords and they are all ranking in google.com 2nd pages but not found anywhere in google.ca
    All my keywords have city+keyword variations in them. For example, toronto dog training, dog training toronto (not my keywords). And all the contents on my site only mentions toronto and canada and I have no other cities or countries name on it. I have done backlinks. My backlinks are done in link pyramid like tier1, tier2, and tier3. For my tier 1 I have web 2.0's and some high pr sites. Tier2, are social bookmarks, high pr sites, forum profiles, and other high pr sites. Tier 3 is all xrummer links and scrapebox blog comments. I have read on the forums that a .ca domain and country specific hosting and canadian backlinks would help in ranking in Canada or google.ca. Anyone face this kind of situation. What do you guys suggest I do next? A little help would be really appreciated. Thanks

    Your site need a backlinks from .ca sites and make him more popular on niche relevant forums having .ca extension. Try to get the backinks from signature if signature links are not allowed then just place your link in profile website and do quality posts, through this your website get a great juice and you see a SERP movement in google.ca

    If you targeting Canada country then host it to canadian server and assign dedicate IP to your domain, also try to get some backlinks on canadian IP sites...
