I currently use Magneto and have the multi store setup with a default .com store, a .ca store for Canada, .co.uk, .in and now a .us. What is strange is when I go to Google and type in cache:mysite.com, I see the following:

cahce:mysite.in
the .in site is what appears as the cached site. this is good.

cache:mysite.co.uk
the .co.uk site is what appears as the cached site. this is good.

cache:mysite.com
the .com site is what appears as the cached site. this is good.

Then there is the problem.

cache:mysite.ca
the .com site is the site that Google cached here

cache:mysite.us
the .ca site is the site that Google cached here

Now my .us site is ranking pretty well in Google.com and my .ca site is doing good in Google.ca. Should I care or this the sign of a bigger problem? Just seems odd that Google would cache another site than the site it is on. When you visit the .us site it doesn't redirect you to the .com site, so not sure how it ended up on there.

Both sites are very similar as they sell the same products. Some of the banners are shared and some are unique like "Welcome to USA customers" vs. "Welcome to UK customers" but overall both sites share the same products, pages, etc. If it was a duplicate content issue, why would Google separate the other domains but not the .us one or .ca one.

Wondering if I should be worried.

I also use hreflang tag calling each store, like en-us goes to .us site, en-ca goes to .ca site, etc so each site has a purpose. That should remove any duplicate content worries or at least I would think.
