    Hey BHW

    When I search for my targeted keyword in Ireland, the keyword has around 260 search per month. In the UK however, it gets around 1000 searches per month. was wondering if I could rank in Google uk from Ireland and if so how?

    Thanks

    Thinks you can set your preference in google webmaster tools. I live in Australia but have set my preference for USA, as most of my traffic needs to be from the USA for Amazon affiliate reasons.

    In my opinion:

    International brand - Use .com and grow your website, build better backlinks. It will rank in many countires if good enough.
    UK Brand only - Use .co.uk domain
    IE Brand only - Use ie domain but expect difficulty climbing in other countries although not impossible

    I have had websites targeted to one country but they still climb the rankings in other countries but slower.

    Get yourself a co.uk domain and build some high quality backlinks (preferably guest posts) from co.uk niche sites to improve relevancy. Also try to post unique contents targeting UK people just to popularize your website.

    In this way, you can easily rank in Google.ie if its already ranking well in UK.
