    Question Geo-targeting


    Hi!
    I am an amateur in SEO and I am trying to boost my site in the engines. I want my company to go global and for this reason I chose the English language, knowing though that this is not enough. I was wondering if there is something wrong if I am from a specific country but I set my geo-targeting as if I'm from US? Is this possible to happen? If I get caught, I get penalised for that?

    Follow that link as it may give you general info on how geotagging works with Google.

    To answer your question, as long as you aren't doing anything nefarious with your site and you are doing legitimate business, you have nothing to worry about.

    Hi

    Focus on Local business listings as much as you can.

    Thank you! And I would like to clear out that by "getting caught" I meant getting Pandalised by Google. I sure sounded like I was up to something illegal. Anyway... Thanks again!
