Lets say I have a .com -domain on a server located in the USA. The language of my page is english (and only english). My character set is utf-8 and the language set in the meta-descriptions is "en".
The Domain is made only for english-spoken surfers.
But the only incoming Links this Domain has is from foreign language-Domains (e.g. germans).
Can you tell me in what Index I will be listet?
in the "english-spoken"-index (a USA-citizen goes to google.com and types "keyword" without setting any options)
or in the german index: a german goes to google.de and types "keyword" and finds me
or in a mixture of both?
I've always assumed that the last option requires either a ".de" domain or, if you have something generic like ".com", a "German IP address" (i.e., a server that is known to be physically located in Germany). I suspect that it is not a result of incoming links --although that could be different if every IBL is from a German site...
although that could be different if every IBL is from a German site
I suspect that if every IBL is from a German site there's a very high possibility that he'll appear in the "Seiten auf Deutsch" section.
I have a Spanish site which until recently was hosted in the US and without any special language tags it was appearing in the "páginas en español" option.
