    Hi Guys,
    I have set up an Auto blogs 3 days before and working my way to set-up lots of blog to acheive 200 blogs mark by the end of January,2011.
    The domain currently im having is a country specific domain, but am targeting long tail key phrases that have almost nill local search volume in the country which the domain is in But have good global search volume.

    My doubt is due to the TLD of my domain my usual chances of getting first page to the long tail key phrases am targeting will be diminished greatly ?
    What would you advice ? Because switching to another domain after i did all those tedious works of setting up an autoblog i really feel tired.
    Let me know your thoughts or share your experiences on ranking globally with a country specific domain.

    Thanks.

    Google knows what language your pages are in. It doesn't factor in the TLD.

    The ccTLD does factor in. How many ".es" or ".co.uk" have you come across if you are in the US? even though the content maybe in English. Go with an extension that also is common amongst your target audience. Attach these blogs to Webmaster Tools if it has a setting for target worldwide you're all good. If it's set to one country or language get another domain.

    @snag73 - Google webmasters tool doesn't allow country specific TLD domains to set country specific. Im targeting only my country users now so hope this direction will get me more visitors.
