    It's certainly possible. Check this forum that I'm a member of: www.immortaltechnique.co.uk

    It used to rank #1 on google.com for 'Immortal Technique', and still ranks pretty well now.

    Hmm, I don't know about that one. I'm sure it's possible to rank, but I don't how hard it will be. Can't speak from experience either, I'm afraid.

    You can rank it everywhere, it could be harder but possible. For example if you want to rank it in google Brazil make sure you are using web hosting from Brazil. And also make sure in google webmasters account you point witch country you are want to target.

    Important aspects are web hosting country and backlinks originated from the country you want to rank in.

    You will rank on another countries, but google will give priority to the local pages if any
