Get Into Google Country Search With Google Webmaster Tools

Ever since we got google.lk I was wondering how to get into it. Problem is google.lk was only indexing .lk domains. Rightfully so but all my sites are either .com or .info. Crap now what? Well I had a Google Webmaster tools account for my blog’s sitemap. I read somewhere that now you can get into country search with it. Here’s how.

  1. Go to Google Webmaster tools
  2. Get a Google account if you don’t have one.
  3. Login and add your site from the Dashboard.
  4. Verify it
  5. Now click on your site and go to Tools > Set geographic target
  6. Check Associate a geographic location with this site
  7. Select your country from the drop down and click Save

After a few days later I could search myself using the pages from Sri Lanka check box.
