Original had set Geo targeting to UK
On June 14th I changed the settings to US and three days ago, when the Geo targeting kicked in, the following happened (searching from UK IP):
- dropped 2 positions in Google UK (UK tab only)
- jumped a page in Google UK (Web - majority of searches in UK)
- jumped four pages in Google.com
So setting my target as US, actually improved my positions in Google UK for a very relevant keyword term at present. This was done in isolation and there haven't been any other changes. I have some great data to back this up but just waiting for confirmation from Tedster on whether I can use it or not.
