    With dot com domains hosted here in Australia that you want to be seen by a 'Global' audience, in WMT in settings for the domain should the domain 'target audience' be set at 'not listed' or is there another way to do it?

    I cannot find an explanation from Google as to what should be set for 'Global Audience' as the target.

    cheers,
    Shags

    i have a few .tv's that i set to global by going to my site at webmaster tools/settings/geographic target

    I think if you just leave the options blank is it for global as you are not specifying a particular country

    I hope this helps

    I think I answered my own question - or Google did - the 'learn more' link next to Geographic Targeting in WMT settings (now where did that come from?? :D )

    ooops !! :)
