It does not matter what country that you target.I believe that it DOES matter - else, why the choice?
It is THIS difference that I am concerned about.
Is it true that sites targetted at US, UK etc earn more than others ?
And if you took today's miserable EPC average what would you think then?
My primary thought was to reduce impressions in India and Pakistan. I am very popular in these countries, for reasons that totally escape me.
The reason is plain and simple. India and China visitors don't shop online. They're too poor. Most probably don't even have a credit card.

The Indian middle class alone is larger than the entire population of the USA and Canada
What an incredible lack of knowledge you have about what's really happening in the world

Above, I see good, true opinions, but I do not see a direct answer to the OP's question. Let me ask it again.
In Google Webmaster Tools, if I set my "Geographic Target" to "United States", will I earn more money, or less money?
Give me a break. What do the Indian middle class earn? $1000/year?
I doubt that you've done much homework on this. India has approx. $2 billion in annual credit card volume whereas the U.S has $1 trillion

Even as you say IF they dont have credit cards, the small percentage that do, beats the population here in the US.

What are the growth rates? Are there other reasons for not using cards such as shops that do not accept cards, tax evasion, better prices for cash, higher risk of fraud etc.
