    Hi,

    I m from India and one of my website is ranking for several terms on Google US but when i check it on Google India it is no where. How to geo target my website to several countries.

    In webmaster tools i have removed the checkbox which says "Target users in "

    Is there any way i can target Google US and Google India.

    Google, Yahoo, and Bing developed this format for geo-targeting websites. I've used it on a few local SEO clients, and noticed mild increases in SERPs. There's a decent generator for these at:

    I don't think you can target more that a 1 country with Google .
    Plz note ; before you go and geo target your website , make sure that you did home work about that as once a day I geo targeted my website and after 2 weeks , I un geo targeted it which lead me to a big drop in traffic :(

    You can target more than one country by creating sub-directories and sub-domains and geo-targeting each of those.
