thanks John, under geo tarketing I found this ........ "If no information is entered in Webmaster Tools, we'll continue to make geographic associations largely based on the top-level domain (e.g. .co.uk or .ca) and the IP address of the webserver from which the context was served."  the site in question is www.stainlesssteelfasteners.co.nz, there are no issues as such, it seems to be going ok in the searches, its just that when I read that, as far appearing in NZ searches, it would be doing even better if I hosted it in NZ somewhere, that what the information on seems to be saying.  Have I interpreted this wrong?
