Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Then on 15 September the .it one nose-dived into the hundreds. It was the only foreign, non-english, site that was showing up towards the top of the SERPs on google.com for that particular keyword. When searching on Google.it it is still #1.
Has any one else observed foreign sites taking a toll in the .com version of Google?
Google has been delivering me local results today, while I was tried to search non-regional keywords.
What I have found:
The terms searched had nothing to do with my region, and local results where only the top three positions. Content was most often unrelated, with maybe only a phrase in a paragraph about the keyword searched.
Frustrated, I switched to proxy I was able to return much different and more pure results.
I should have come here earlier today, but I went looking around for other tips on changes in GEO targeted results. Found nothing about an update.
Anyone seeing this?
I could not recreate this using a proxy from another region.
