    According to some tests I did awhile back, yes.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

  2. though it's in India, site is ranking well in UK... with only few UK backlinks - I think main factor here is UK hosting..

    Google values relavancy so it's likely that they use the location of the ip as a relevancy factor, But I doubt that it is the only factor.

    I rarely see any UK sites in the search results. But I see US businesses that are hosted in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

    It is a good idea of moving your sever, it think it is also a backlink issue lack of backlink can also not to rank well.

    If you have a .uk extension, then google will determine it as a site exclusive for UK only. In that case, you can have low traffic from other countries unless they knew your site already. If you want a bigger market, switch it to .com..

    You are talking about Geo Targeting. Google Webmaster Central removes all doubt:

    If no information is entered in Webmaster Tools, we'll continue to make geographic associations largely based on the top-level domain (e.g. .co.uk or .ca) and the IP address of the webserver from which the context was served.
    and,

    If an international domain (.com, .org, .eu, etc) has been used, we'll rely on the IP address.

    i don't think so ...
    cause i own a dot asia with 50% (us), 40% (euro) traffic less then 5% from the hosting country, i believe is the keyword search term (asian hardly use "b*tch" but western country love to use Asian b*tch )

    Apparently, the .asia extension is not geotargeted.

    Acording to what Google says, yes.

    Working with multi-regional and multilingual websites. (look for John Mu's answer about the .asia gTLD)


    edit: this from a geotarget perspective, not for general SEO as Bogart correctly points out in the next post.
