    Happy Easter BHW,

    Two months ago I purchased a .org domain for a niche. It's already ranking on page #2 in the US Serps, but after further analysis I've decided it would be better targeted in the UK. The site is indexed and slowly climbing from position #80-100 with targeted keywords in the UK Serps. In the top 10 of my main keyword there are a few .org's and .com's however top three are dominated by .com.uk/.org.uk TLDs.

    Would it do me a great benefit registering the .org.uk TLD and 301 Redirect my .org to the new domain? Or will building .uk TLD backlinks be sufficient enough?

    Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks!

    I suppose. Depends how much you've done on this domain. Yeh you could just buy the org.uk and 301 redirect like you said, if it's available do it!
