Hello All

I am moving a .COM website with international traffic to a .IN ccTLD.

The site is of generic content which will be of interest to an international audience. My doubt is if this ccTLD change will affect the present international traffic I am receiving. Will my site start showing lesser for people outside India?

Thanks

Possibly.
The critieria for domain location are:
- cctld
- ip location of hosting server
- backlink country identification

CCTLD is a major one of these.

I would suggest you look for backlinks of an international nature, and perhaps host out of India.
