I currently operate four different international domains on a multi store setup. In Google Webmaster Tools, each url targets specific countries such as .ca for Canada, co.uk for UK, etc. For some reason when I search Google.com for keywords, results from the .ca site show up. Why? I'd understand if they appeared on Google.ca. I don't understand why I can tell Google to target a specific country and why it ignores it. I feel like since it is combining all sites as one and won't individualize them, it ultimately hurts every site as a whole.

Very strange. I noticed today that my .ca site ranks very well for top keywords in Google.ca. My co.uk domain and .in domains also rank very well for top keywords in Google.co.in and Google.co.uk respectively. The problem is, I am getting all international domain results in Google.com including my .com site. I think this is causing problems.
