    Hi all,

    I registered a new domain a few months ago and started to optimise the website for my chosen keywords. As the site is a .com domain it is ranking well in google.com but not really any good in google.co.uk.

    I would therefore be really grateful if anyone could provide a list of places I can get .co.uk back links. I am also interested in paid back links as well.

    Regards. John.

    UK article directories are an easy place to start - easy to find and fast response rate for inclusion. A quick google for 'UK article directories' brought up quite a few options.

    You can also play around with the advanced search in Google looking for .co.uk's or use site:.co.uk command with your keywords.

    There are also a number of UK based (free) directories that can be found in a similar way, but I generally find that Article Directories have a faster response rates so would get a few articles out there straight away.

    Depending on your business, you can use Gumtree for UK traffic if need be. Google seems to be quite fond of it and if structured right will rank well in Google and drive some okish traffic to your site. Just be careful to avoid letting it outrank you for the keywords you're building backlinks for as it has quite strong rankings.

    Code:
    "Powered By PHPDug" inurl:.co.uk

    Thanks all for the advise. Regarding the article directories must have very low pr, such as 1 or zero. Thanks for the list coronzone, will definitely make use of it.

    Does anyone know of any paid sites that I can submit to?

    Cronozon,

    Would you have any idea how to find out which of the links that you have supplied are ********? Is there any tool that can check this?

    You said you have a .com domain,,,and I would take a guess you domain registration was done in the usa and you host it on a usa server and your whois shows you are from the usa any bells ringing why you will never rank well in the uk
