Recently I wrote about Google Webmaster Tools and many of the responses were centred around “yes, but I’m not really sure what do with it”.
- are in Australia,
- not using a .com.au domain,
- hosting your blog overseas (or on blogspot) and
- you want to come up when Aussie Google users search “pages from Australia”
then you’ll probably want to know about this new function on Webmaster Tools.
It is now possible to easily geographically target your website (or subdomain) to a specific location (i.e. “pages from Australia“).
When logged into Webmaster tools, under “Tools” select “Set Geographic Target”:
You are then presented with a form to fill in the details of the location you want to target. Too easy!
Christine from Semfire has some more Google geographic targeting information.
Update: There is now more information available on the Google Webmaster Central Blog.
