    .co.uk domains and seo/serp Help!

    Hey guys,

    I am thinking about buying but it is .co.uk

    It is not the com/org/net but how will google view this domain?

    If the .com was to rise up out of the wood work would I have a disadvantage?

    Thanks in Advance!

    If your targeting UK traffic then the the .co.uk should get higher in the serps for countries such as England as far as I know but if your going for traffic from all over the globe the .com will usually go over a .co.uk in google with no promotion but remember that can be fixed. Just my $0.02

    I have a .co.uk domain and it's doing well. But the site is geo specific. I think that a .co.uk can do well. At the least you will get the UK traffic.

    $600 is a nice chunk of change. Will UK traffic help you?

    I think that it's just as important on where the links originate from. If most of the links are from US sites and .com, the site should rank.

    But I don't see too many of the country specific tlds when I'm searching.

    Well for ads in general the best paying countries are UK/US/CA/AU so yeah in the long run I would say it would help me. I do know, its a gamble. You can rank for anything it just always helps having exact match because at any time, the exact matchers can come out of the wood work and without to much work take you over.

    So thats why I am considering buy this and the .org/.net/.com are so freaking expensive...so yeah

    Here's a good article about domains jumping in value

    The internet is expected to grow by 4x in the next 4 years.

    Out of the million monthly searches, how many are from the UK?
