    i am starting a website for selling physical product. I have a chance to get exact match domain .co.uk, but i i want to sell worldwide. If i go with co.uk instead of .com will i get less sales from outside uk?

    Unfortunately, after the last EMD update, exact match domains don't rank too well for the matched keywords. Partial match domains however, still rank very well.

    A co uk domain would have a better chance at ranking for traffic from UK and correspondingly have lesser chance to rank for traffic from other countries. Since you do not want to target only UK traffic, I would suggest going for a commercial domain with a partial match of keywords (name can contain all keywords - just don't let it be an exact match)
