    Hi,

    If you do not want to set GEO Targeting then don't select any country just leave it disable.

    Hope this helps,

    I don't think that you can effect search results with this. It is for sorting things only, I guess.

    As a webmaster, you can control how this feature works by adjusting your Geographic Targeting settings. Log in to Webmaster Tools and choose Site configuration > Settings > Geographic Target. From here you can associate a particular country/region with your site. These settings will determine the name that appears as a region tag. You can learn more about using the Geographic Target tool in a prior blog post and in our Help Center.

    "In sitemaps i see a combo box"

    Can you please explain this little more? Where are you seeing this box? What software are you using to generate sitemaps?

    This may help you understand Geographic targeting:
