    Ok I've just got a few questions about a website I've got running. I did some SEO such as keyword optimisation and created some Web2.0 hubpages (6 of them) with spun, keyword rich articles all linking to my moneysite. it took about 3 weeks but my moneysite (and some of the hubsites) are on the front page of google now. However, I just wanted to see what happens when I do a local google search by clicking the "pages from Australia" button as oposed to the Web button, and my site is no where to be found. The problem is, I'm targeting local businesses so I am wanting people to find me on the "Australia" tab. Is there any way I can do this?

    Go to Google Webmaster Tools and change geotargeting:
    Site configuration -> Settings -> Geographic target -> Australia

    Yeah,

    You should get your site hosted on an Auzzy server, and ideally one that is dedicated, because sharing a server with loads of porn or spam sites can also have a negative effect on your site.
