A good romance with the google webmaster tool simply aids you have a blog that is google friendly and user friendly too. If your blog content is crawed without any hassle, then you are left with the choice of ranking above your competitors in search result.

What Google Does When You Target A Particular Location

For instance, my blog is targetted at people staying in the united state. This invariably means that i have asked search engine to feed my content mostly to people from this geographical location. Your target should be influence by what you post or the type of articles you publish on your site.

Definitely, you are not going to get more readers if your blog content is niche around a different country, and you targeted audience are people living in the USA or other countries. It does not work that way.
