    Does someone of you use this feature? Will it help me or hurt me? Since the website is about celebrity and not about some local shop in NY or w/e?

    If you have some of gTLD domains and don't choose a geotargeting in Google Webmaster Tools your site will be geo targeted by your hosting IP.
    That's why it's better to use geotargeting in Google WMT in order to know your target for sure.

    So even if i have .com and my webhosting is from europe i should be better with targeting US since all the content is in english?
    Won't i loose traffic from other countries, where main language is English? This is why i asked this, i was confused with this geo targeting on google webmaster tools since my first website, but i never asked /=

    Some websites have content that is primarily targeted for a particular country or language. As a result, the content of such websites will not be of high importance to the other areas in the world. The said utility in the webmaster tools allows you to set a geographic area which you think is the target of your website's content. You can select a country from the given list as your target.

    If your celebrity is from Hollywood and you target audience is Just from USA then you can use geo targeting for USA...then google will not consider it for worldwide but just for USA if you don't target specific country then google will consider it for worldwide..
