    My co.uk website is ranking well on google.co.uk, but not on google.com
    Is there any particular strategy i can use to get it ranked on .com?

    Not really since it is a local domain.

    If you want to take the risk of somewhat lower ranking in the UK, you may purchase the corresponding .com and redirect from .co.uk to it. Then your chances are much higher to rank internationally.

    Make back links on .com domains not on co.uk and place back link on US IP address site.

    Google gives preference to local searches. You can notice the ranking difference between co.uk and .com and build more backlinks from dot com domain and you can see that ranking in .com domain will increase.

    Some good points here. I have a opposite problem, i have a blogspot blog which is ranking high on google.com but i also want to get it ranked on google.co.uk as most of searches comes from UK.

    Any ideas how i can get it ranked higher on google uk? Or shall i buy .co.uk domain and redirect that to blogspot blog?

    Get backlink from U.S based site, Google.com is mainly for U.S..

    What you are presently doing is linking to .co.uk sites hosted in U.K.

    Yes! You should to place back links on niche websites other than .uk URL extension.
