Reality Check In Rankings

Here is my question.
I know how to do the whole "there are no guarantees, other than purchasing adwords" pitch.
And, yes, I can also tell them that the more specific the keyword the better.
But do any of you realistically feel that you could get a client on page one of Google for such broad keywords.
Sometimes, I want to just tell them to save their SEO money and put it towards PPC if they "really" want to be on page one for outdoor furniture.
Am I alone in this?

If it is going to take a month of solid no break link building to achieve what they want, then give them a price, and see what they say.
Why not 'garden furniture' then? Hell of a jump in traffic from Outdoor furniture' to casual furniture!

You walk into a doctor's office, say to him, 'Doc I am in real pain, I mean REAL pain. I have seen 3 pain specialists, and they have all charged me lots and failed. Can you guarantee that I will not feel this pain anymore?'
Doc says yep, $50,000 in cash in advance.
You are so painwracked that you agree, get the 50k give it to the doctor, who right away takes out a gun an shoots you dead, you didn't feel a thing, nor will you again. He kept his side of the bargain.
My point? The devil is in the detail, and be very careful of guarantees

That way, while things are building up, they'll at least be seeing some results. Then eventually, they will start to move up for the "money" phrases. But imo, you should never take on a campaign where they only want a couple of phrases.

I assume you mean,
Is there a wordtracker-like software for German and French?
Wouldn't I also have to do separate keyword analysis for each language, or just make assumptions from the English results?
Thanks for your help.

I would highly recommend it. People in different areas search differently. And in many languages, phrases are worded differently too, avoid doing a direct translation b/c you could get in a lot of trouble w/ it.
The idea of seo'ing a site for multiple languages is a bit mind boggling, see if you can get an outsource company w/in the country (or an individual) to help you out.

Even though the main thrust of the thread is dealing with .ca searches, you can extrapolate safely it to other country-specific circumstances.

I assume you mean,
This could be a problem iro Google, as Denyse pointed out. If a user clicks on 'Pages from Germany only', then the site must be hosted on a German IP in order to be included in the search results; preferably, it should also have a proper .de tld.
