I have one client situation where I use geotargeting. It's an ecommerce store, and for various reasons, the shipping and other logistics for getting these products to Canada made it a lot easier to just make another site and store for Canadian traffic. They are virtually the same sites, one is US only and the other is Canada only. I've set the geo targeting in WMT, and as far as I can tell, it seems to be mostly working, but I'm not in Canada. Both sites are in both Google.com and Google.ca; the US site ranks at the top of Google.com and the Canadian one at the top of Google.ca. They are essentially duplicate sites, and I'm a little surprised I haven't had more problems with this. Eventually we'll have to come up with a better solution.
