google.com vs google.co.uk search results ranking
I think this may be a more common problem than people realise, try it out and let me know.
Issue is that my site ranks higher in google.com than in google.co.uk.
There seems to be no logical explanation for this...my domain is a .co.uk, my hosting comapany is UK, the host IP address is in UK. Why would it rank higher in google.com?
If you're going to try this out then you can't just put www.google.com in the address bar as it will automatically default to google.co.uk when you press ok. The way to test it is to perform your search on google and then when the results are displayed change the ....google.co.uk/search..... in the address bar to ....google.com/search..... and then press 'go' in the browser (do not press 'search' on google as it will default back to .co.uk again).
Sorry, just realised that most of you are probably in US anyway so your default will be google.com anyway...but there'll no doubt be some UK readers...
same problem n exact info to help
it is a late contribution, but so far there is no info to help solving such issue.
I am working on a travel web that ranks high in .com but in .uk it is really bad.
i assume the uk link building would be fine but all ideas of shifting the domain name look really hard to handle especially when we deal with 4 or 5 years age domain.
my web privatetoursinegypt.com has a fair ranking in google.com but looking for same search term in .uk it comes on page 3 or 4 what reallu upsets me.
long time seraching for useful info about this but it seems a hopless case here.
