    Hi

    I have a client and they have sites in the us and canada.

    I got a guy who had never done this specific search before, and he was in chicago. He typed in chicago keyword, and got the results back like this -

    title tag as usual that appears in serps.
    chicago.somewebsite.com/ - Canada
    the description as usual goes here

    They are number one, but are worried US searchers will be put off with canada being mentioned in the link that google has created for the serps results.

    Anyone know why this is?

    Its a US site on a US server, with exclusively US content.

    Thanks

    Sean

    Is their website registered in Google webmaster tools as the audience in Canada?

    hi

    I haven't added them to webmaster, but they could have done before me I guess.

    Could that be it?

    Thanks

    thanks very much, they have assured me they have not done this, but now looks obvious.

    Appreciated.
