Im looking to rank locally - my gut says .co.uk would have better chance than .com.
I asked the same question on here before and was told to go with .co.uk. Also, British hosting helps rankings too
Depending in your targetted country, get a ctld and hosting in that country.
I'm based in the UK and often register both, use the .co.uk for the main website and re-direct the .com to the .co.uk. This helps keep traffic if people just assume .com when typing the domain name. As mentioned above, go with the target country and hosting location.
I won't let the domain extension be a problem for ranking cos it's not.
However, if am in U.S i won't use .co.uk and if am in U.K and targeting U.K then i would go for co.uk.
go for .co.uk as you are targeting local market
It doesn't really matter which one you choose - If you choose to go with .com you can set it up in webmaster tools so that your site is targeting the UK local search market. The most important thing is to get a good proportion of your links from where you want to rank locally. So either from .co.uk sites or from sites hosted in the UK - Local hosting will help too.
You want rank from UK you can use .co.uk sites surly it will help otherwise you can use .com and .co.uk or anything else.
