    I want to target an audience, based on a product selling in the USA only. To cut the expenses, I have a thought of using my hosting and servers in Europe.

    Do I have any luck?

    I mean... Is this site going to rank in USA Google results if it has .com and English language but European servers?

    How Google decides/knows which country is a website targeted to?

    To my knowledge, some years ago, it mattered if you hosted the site in the US or anywhere else. Nowadays, in my opinion, it doesn't affect SEO that much (if at all). I know there are some authority sites that are hosted in EU with very decent US traffic.

    Do I have to play with any settings or something to localize it, or just let the English language do its job?
