    International Targeting via Google webmaster Tool


    Hi,

    I have targeted United States as my preferred country in Google Webmaster Tool when I launched my website. But Now I want to target other countries like Australia too.
    So for this should I remove the targeted country from my webmaster tool? What effect will it make to my website current ranking?

    Any other support like things to be taken care, like changes in on page work, off page work will be helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    I personally have no experience with this but I would remove the targeting: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/62399
    There should be no negative impact on your current rankings
    Everything will be ok in the end

    If it's not ok, it's not the end

    I got your point, but my question stays the same. What the case if I get it removed. The page you shared tells me about the case while we are setting up the things. Anyway thanks for the support.
