    This is what you should try:

    google webmaster tools > Site configuration > Settings > Geographic target > Target users in the US...

    It helped me, I hope it will do the job for you too. Good luck.

    you should also check your backlink soruces.

    for example if most of your backlinks are from high PR .nl,de,it etc.. (europian websites) it could also be the reason, try to add some massive .com and EDU backlinks it can also help.

    Thank you, it was ok already,

    lately i have traffic also from 1st page of

    .com.sa
    .ch
    .de
    .com.sg

    but not from the .com

    the domain has less than 1 year,
    is this a kind of sandbox maybe ?

    Just curious, is the trick above enough to rank for the country you want or there are other things as well?

    Also depends on the content and keywords, and how diverse both of those are.

    What kind of content do you have on your site? Images, videos, blog, articles, etc??

    Let us know and we'll try to help you out.

    All the best.
