    Moving your site to a US server is a good idea if you want to target the US market. I have hear that you can also create tons of backlinks from US sites pointed to your UK site if you want to rank in US, but I am not sure about this.

    what's the TLD of the site? If it's a co.uk site then most likely it will be difficult to get US sites to link to it.

    I do think that hosting it in the USA will help, and getting more us-related links will help, as well.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    What country is listed in the domains' WHOIS record?
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory

    Perhaps the UK backlinks are stronger.

    nope, I think it's about lower competition in UK than US.

    I think its the backlinks. I had a site ranking no. 1 on google India and couldn't get it to rank on the .com Much to my chagrin, I discovered that much of my links were from India sites causing the ranking issue.
