I have a .us domain, however according to Webmaster Center bing has my website mistakenly in the region "gb" instead of "us". And according to my traffic stats I am in bing UK results instead of US. How do I contact bing to change this? Searchers are getting bad results due to this.
I suggest adding the following meta tag to your home page header and verify that there are no tags pointing to "en-gb"--especially if you are using the Joomla CMS.
<meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en-us">
Please check the meta tags of your site and look for the necessary changes
I am using Joomla and I did find it was pointing to en-gb instead of en-us. So I went ahead and made the change. Thanks for your help!
glad to help.
Can you target multiple country indexes using the tags. I have a few sites that cater to US, UK and AU audiences and swap out the contact information and currency using the user's IP.
If I add 3 country meta tags will my site show up in all 3? The language is very similar so this would be an ideal solution.
I have been searching for such information for months now. Thanks God I have found your blog, it has helped me a lot in working on my project. Thanks a lot

Yes Brett is right, <meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en-us"> is good code to use. Joomla can be very finicky.
