    You can use adwords new keyword tool beta and insights for search tool to get a rough idea on search volumes.

    Just an extra bit of info. for you:

    In Google Webmaster Tools, you can choose a "Geographic target" for your website if it has a .com address, but for a .co.uk address this option is not available, and it just says "Your site's domain is currently associated with the target: United Kingdom" (i.e., you can't change it). So, as someone already said, it will be geographically targeted, and there's nothing you can do about it. See this page for more info.

    The IP address of the webserver is the other factor that Google uses alongside the tld. Perhaps a contact page with a US address along with a US webserver would overide the geographic target.

    Well, one of my .co.uk websites is hosted on HostGator on American servers, and Google Webmaster Tools still says "Your site's domain is currently associated with the target: United Kingdom". But yeah, perhaps in the actual Google SERPs, the geographic target and the server location are just "competing" factors that each have an effect.

    Did you try the External Keyword Tool and change the geographical location to UK?

    It may depend on the niche on how the geographic target is used. I've seen some .eu show up on seraches but not too many .co.uk sites.

    On a search for "john and edward grimes" from the UK star search, the uk sites are showing. So it is possible for the UK sites to appear in the regular results.

    [ame=http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=john+and+edward+grimes&rl z=1R2GGLL_enUS328&aq=1m&oq=edward+grimes&aqi=g1g-m9]john and edward grimes - Google Search[/ame]
