    I have Japanese language site which I've set geographic target to Japan - and the site ranks very well on

    Now I want to add English articles on my site and want to do SEO on those.

    My question is: as my site is set to target Japan, and already do very well on - will I get penalize on, or it doesn't matter?

    Any idea about this?
