Sunday, December 14, 2008 5:43 AMMy website is being classified as "Region"US this is even if the language data shows that there is not a single word in English on the site, which is clearly of no interest for the US market.
How do I change that? The "Region" field

Currently there is not a way to directly change the region. You could try adding a language meta tag to your page headers. That has worked for other people.

<meta http-equiv="content-language" content="ca">
Tuesday, May 12, 2009 12:08 AMI have just the opposite problem. My site is categorized as language EN (correct), but REGION as ES (obviously wrong, I'm in US). I have no clue how it was determined that I was "targeting" the ES region, since all my stuff is in English, not even any foreign quotes that I recall. I'm really frustrated because there appears to be no recourse when your site is mis-region-ized. So the vast majority of readers who live where I do -- and with whom I can actually communicate -- will ignore me because they think I'm targeting Spain? Arrrgh.
I've added additional geo, content, language, etc. headers. Maybe that will make a difference, whenever I get crawled again.
