    Ok, so I have done my research on this keyword and have gathered all the information I need.

    I have got the wordpress theme, articles etc.

    Now the domain I wanted was .com but someone has it and it is not indexed in google at all.

    I found the exact domain but a .co.uk one instead.

    is a .co.uk good for seo? There are also, .me .us .mobi etc.

    So what do you reckon?

    I am going to register it with godaddy and also get there wordpress hosting as it is fairly cheap.

    Thanks

    Oh also this is my first time doing this. I have been researching it for about a month so I hope all goes well.

    .co.uk is absolutely fine, and you will find no problems regarding SEO. The only problem that you will find, is it takes longer to tupe out than .com

    Yeah .co.uk domains work well, is your audience worldwide, UK or US? 123-reg.co.uk is also a good place to buy through

    Yes, the audience is worldwide. I have done some tests with sub-domains and social bookmarked them using the keyword I am using in the domain and within about 1 week I has 500+ uv and that was just from 1 website.

    I might add some adsense as I have an account and then flip the site if it goes well as I have one guy who is saying that if after 3 months the site is doing well and your making a bit of money from it he will buy it off me for a premium price.

    So I am pretty happy lol

    Thanks for the help and I will check out 123reg

    .co.uk = good for the UK, as simple as that. Imo ccTLDs are not best choice for worldwide marketing. But there are some exceptions as always.
