    I've had great success ranking in Google.com for a number of my websites, but now I'd like to try ranking in Google.co.uk specifically. Is there anything that I can do as far as on page or off page seo to help rank my site?

    I've never dealt with foreign SEO so I'm wondering if things like location meta tags increase relevancy and rank. Should I be looking for UK backlinks?

    Any suggestions?

    Hi.,
    The best thing to get rank in google.co.uk is to promote sites in UK sites. It may be any type of domain, if we promote in local sites the sites get rank in that local search engine.

    change the geographical settings to the uk in webmaster tools. I'm not sure how much local backlinks help, many people say they help a lot but I'm ranking number 1 for most of my keywords in my country and I hardly have any local backlinks
