We were trying to buy our .com.au in .com form but it's taken already.

Is there a way to set a .com.au to have a global geotarget?

Does a .com have any geotargetting associated with it? If so is there a way to mimic these settings with the .com.au domain?


Google does not allow many country top level domains (ccTLDs) to be geo-targetted globally. This includes com.au. There is no way to get a com.au domain to show up in global Google search, only in Google searches from Australia.

If you want a generic TLD that can be targeted globally in Google search, you must choose one from this list published by Google.
