    Anybody have any experience ranking for other than Google.com? For example google.ca or google.co.uk?

    since its in english it is pretty much same, but it is a goog idea to use google webmaster tools to tell google which country you want targeted...

    I've noticed it's good to have a .ca, or have Canada in your title or on your page somewhere. Also to have a bunch of .ca backlinks.

    .ca backlinks are more difficult to get...so I wonder if it's mostly on-site elements? Of course having a .ca domain but also have canadian keywords in title, description etc?

    I think Google just needs to know it's a Canadian site. So whether you have Canada in the title, or a business address, it probably helps. I'm sure Google places helps too.

    Yeah .ca links are a little harder to get, but think about it, what's better for Ranking in Canada, than getting other Canadian sites to link to you.

    Try to get backlinks from CA TLD's

    The more canadian links you get pointing to your site, the better that is for google.ca ranking :)
