Domain not listed in correct geographic area RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our web site www.coordimax.com is hosted in the U.S. but is an Australian company with an Australian IP address (218.214.146.243)

    MSN indexes the site as a Canadian site.

    I have used a geo meta tag and we have our 'contact us' page with our local address but this does not fix the problem.

    How do I get MSN to index Coordimax as an Australian web site?

    Any ideas?

    We recognize this is an issue and we hope to provide a tool in the near future, but currently there is no way for us to manually change the market/ geographic location.

  • The site is hosted by Domain Direct  (domaindirect.com)

     

    The IP address is 218.214.146.243

     

    Both Google and Yahoo pick up the site as Australian but not MSN.
