    Even though I am in this business for years I've never tried to rank for with a ccTLD (country specific domain like .de for Germany).

    Can I get #1 for a german keyword with my .de domain if I have only international/non-german site backlinks?

    Or do I have to have a mix of .com and .de backlinks?
    Or only .de backlinks and german sites?

    It can be done without German backlinks in my opinion and without even having links coming from German sites or within German text.

    I've ranked several sites based in Germany, France and Holland this way with my normal links and articles I'd use for my US sites.
