    I have a .com domain. Is there anything I can do to increase its ranking in .co.uk as well as .com?

    Sorry, I was being a smartarse there - but I just had to screen "breaking Dawn" for the 4th night in a row.

    I find it easier to rank a .com.au in google.com than google.com.au because there's just so many .com backlinks out there. Make your biggest priority getting .co.uk links everyday. Hassle every B/L provider for them etc. It's all just a numbers game really.

    choose your keywords on the basis of uk searches and try to rank in .com..if you get good rank in .com then you will also get good rank in .co.uk too...

    where is the site hosted? If you have a .com hosted outside the UK then everything is telling G that your site is not intended for the UK market.

    So you need to get as many links as you can from sites ending in .co.uk

    A few things which will help:

    * UK hosting, or alternatively set the geo-location in Google Webmaster Tools.
    - If you wish to target both, then you may consider creating a sub-directory (or sub-domain), e.g. domain.com/UK-directory
    * A diverse range of links from UK sites; blogs, forums, Web 2.0, etc. Aim for quality over quantity.
    * If the website represents a business based in a UK location, consider a Google Places listing.

    in all the years i've looked on forums i've never noticed any link building services tailored to the uk market kinda odd really.

    I'm in the process of building a UK based private blog network, although I'm not opening it until after the next Google PR update. It's 25 sites so far but I'll increase that to 50 after the new year. So keep me in mind!

    I think there is definitely a niche there. I did see an ad for uk-based directory posting but can't remember where it was now. Think I found it through Google.
