Google has announced that the .CO Top-Level Domain (TLD) will have all the same geo-targeting options available to the other generic TLDs, such as .com, .net, .biz and .org.
"We will rank .co domains appropriately if the content is globally targeted. Webmasters will soon have the functionality to be able to specify this by using the geotargeting options in Google Webmaster Tools," said a Google spokesperson, as quoted in PC Pro in a July 22nd article.
This was then confirmed by Andrew Allemann of Domain Name Wire in his blog about .CO on the same day who spoke with another Google representative that confirmed the news.
This is great for all! Now, .CO websites can be targeted to meet your business and communication needs anywhere around the world!
