    most of the impressions are in a country im not targetting - we r a local business


    could anyone please help me with this part or explain why this is the case. Im a novice when it comes to SEO and done everything so far by myself.
    Majority of my impressions are in the united states, but my local business is based in london trying to target customers in London. Anyone know why? Thanks

    Hard to say without seeing the site, but if you ONLY care about UK / London, I'd do the following:


    * Make sure your domain is .uk
    * Make sure your site is hosted in the UK
    * Set GWT geo-targeting to UK Can geotargeting improve my organic listings?
    * Mention that the business is based in London on the home page and in the title tag (will help users as well)
    Everything will be ok in the end

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

    Thanks Ann Smarty, the geo targeting was i think by default set to the US. Hopefully it will make a little difference
