Geo targeting a domain using Google webmaster tools


Just saw on Vanessa Fox’s Blog that you can now tell Google what country a website is targeting w00t! Before if you had a non geographic domain say a .com domain and you hosted say in the USA or Germany you wouldn’t normally show up for google.co.uk results.

Vanessa has done a post on search engine land here you can even set up subdomains for different countries say fr.site.com and uk.site.com and target different countries.
