    Hello,


    I have my site which belong to a entertainment niche (Indian movies/music).

    In the webmaster tools the country was set to US by default. The site was intented for ranking in google.co.in but now i have good rankings in Google.com but no ranking in india. The searches in google india for my keywords are ten times greater than gooogle.com. Now if i change the country to india, Will i loose my rankings in .Com and will i gain same positions in Co.in? ..I dont really want to loose both end of the day

    I need your suggestions?

    Usually you could drop a few places in com for a while but if you are number 1 or 2 in com your website probably won't drop.

    I'd expect more than a few places drop - more in the order of 5-10, but there's a lot of variables at play, such as competition strength, domain authority, etc.

    Apart from the few places drop in COM, Will i get the same or near to same rankings in Co.in ?? I am more concerned about the rankings in Google india than in Google.com.
