    Are you from US? In the past, I have tried to target websites in Google US (with no mention of my native country India) either in individual posts or anywhere else. I had tried to target only Google US and used all my energy to concentrate on the same. But after a few months, it ranked at the top of my own country i.e. Google.co.in and was still down near the bottom of the first page for Google.com. I could not fcking understand why it happened and how did it happen. It was a global niche but all content was related to the US. Not sure how the fck Google picked up my country and ranked to the top in my local Google instead of Google US. I am not sure but maybe adding Google adsense messed everything up. It was fine for a month or two before that. Again, I have never understood their logic in ranking sites in their different ccTLD search engines.
