My website is an english video streaming website that gets visitors from all over the world (about 70,000 per day). 35% of my traffic is from the US.

Now, in google Webmaster, if I were to set my geographic target to USA, will I get more overall traffic or less than what I am getting right now?

most of my traffic is organic from google

From my own experience with my websites, I changed from default to Mexico and I didn't see that much boost in traffic.
