    Hi friends!

    My main Project has an .com TLD with german content on it. My target is to rank on top of google.de (germany)

    But the Server Adress is an Austrian IP (neighbour of germany and language is also German)

    So now I rank on first page with my .com domain for a very competive keyword in google.at (Austria) - but the page is nowhere to be found in google.de (Germany) - Actually is somewhere on spot 778 or something.

    I think its caused by the IP-Adress and this really sucks ...

    What do you think? And how hard is it to transfer my complete wordpress blog to a german hoster with german IP? Or what else options do I have?

    First you can try google webmaster tools and point your website to focus for Germany..

    If you want your site to rank ONLY on go0gle.de, geo target it as said above. More info here

    Better move your site to some German hosting, also get backlinks from .de domains..
