If you run website focused on Australia is it a travel-related site? If so it would be reasonable to expect folks interested in visiting Australia would want to visit your site if it is authoritative enough thus your international traffic. Now if the site is focused on internal Australian matters, political bickering etc. that would be different and would be more of interest to locals?
Actually I sell cars so international traffic, from a business perspective is pretty worthless (shhh don't tell Google!)
Aha, the plot thickens! Is each domain getting customized treatment as to which Google ccTLDs are involved?
Yes that's right. These domains (google.com.br, google.com even) are being reported as 'Referring Sites' rather than 'Search Engines'. However it's a definite increase in traffic not just a change in reporting.
I wonder whether this traffic will drop off like stuartmacdonald's experience. I wonder if there's anything I can do to prevent a drop off?
