I have a site I am interested in targeting at more than one country . The problem is google webmaster tools only let you select one country ?

Is there anyway to overcome this ?

I have a .com domain.

That is a good question! A plausible way out could be open another G webmaster account and target another country from there )) Never checked if it would work though.

Don't set any country preference in G's webmaster tools then. You'll have to rank the old fashioned way. Write relevant content in the local languages, get links from sites in those countries, host the site locally, etc.
