American Word, Spanish Home Page Ranks Higher than English

I just cant get this,
for long my site has ranked bad in us, even though its hosted in us.
In co.uk if I compare 2 important keywords we only rank bad in one and in ie we rank good on both.

On bottom of english home page there is a short text with keyword both in english and american english meaning the same such as

widgetenglish and widgetamerican for widgeting in mycity.

so I did a search using google extension to view google result in all english speaking countries,
I did the search like this widgetamerican widgeting mycity, and this is really odd,
In us,I got my spanish index page at second page, and the english many pages later (the spanish withour title, only the company name as title)
In ie, the spanish on first page, also this time withoug title,
and in co.uk the english on second page.

The word widgetamerican does not appear at all on the spanish homepage.
The spanish homepage is declared as: <html lang="es">
and the english: <html lang="en">

The bad result for the english could be due to all problems, however ever got any message from google,
but how can the spanish rank higher and without title?

Google.com might show different results depending on where you (the searcher) are located. For example, if you are not in the U.S., then Google.com might show you different results than it would show someone in the U.S. . Also, it could depend on which country "mycity" is located in?

but I used the extension for google to see different countries, I didnt just write google.com, or co.uk etc in the browser,
and this only happened with that particular keywordcombination.
The only reason I can think about is that somebody from usa links to my spanish homepage with those keywords, then as its a spanish page, the title are changed to just the companyname.
However that explanation is not so good, as also google.ie shows the same for that particular keyword, but google.co.uk doesn´t, co.uk shows the english just as it should.
