    If you're mainly going for the UK market, IMO, .co.uk is a better match than the com. If you're trying to rank in the US, you've got your work cut out for you.

    There are exceptions but using a ccTLD to reach a global audience is not really advisable. Just take a look at the serps for any generic keyword. How many .co.uk, .sp, .it, .de are you seeing? Are the org, net, info taken as well? Some hate .info but for me it's always been the same.
