    Hey guys I am in the US but I have a site on a co.uk domain. The website ranks on the front page for google.co.uk but I cant see it anywhere when i go to google.com. My question is how do I fix this? I see another .co.uk domain rank for my keywords so I know it is possible.

    You cant. You will rank well in the UK but in the US youll be lucky if you do. Why dont you buy the .com/net/org version of your domain name for the US market, if you can?

    Damn that really sucks. I would but they are all taken :/ I guess the .co.uk domain I see ranking for my keywords got lucky. Its sucks because my content is wayyyy better than theirs.

    If USA is your target market, set the location to USA in Google Webmaster Tools.

    Hey thanks for the tip. I tried that but I couldn't find an option for it anywhere. I don't think you can with .co.uk domains for some reason.

    "To set a geographic target:

    1. On the Webmaster Tools Home page, click the site you want.
    2. Under Site configuration, click Settings.
    3. In the Geographic target section, select the option you want.If you want to ensure that your site is not associated with any country or region, select Unlisted"
    Code:

    If the option's not available in Webmaster Tools, it could be because this recommends using a generic top-level domain name (.com, .net, .org, .info), not country level domain name, like .co.uk for geo-targeting.

    You could try hosting in the target country (if not already hosting in the USA), as another ranking factor is Server location (through the IP address of the server).

    In my experience both my .com / .co.uk both rank about the same by about a difference of 1 or 2 places. I do not do anything special.

    G have set your search to your home proxy. Doesnt matter if you are searching locally on google.co.uk... Different search results on different extensions bro.

    Get a UK proxy and check or pm a UK member from here is what i would do.

    Im from NL lolz so sorry ;)

    PS. I use serpbook for that stuff...

    No, don't do that. In my experience, your traffic will drop significantly.
