Ask - Teoma Forum

is Teoma going by where site is hosted?

Our website is hosted in the States, but has a .co.uk domain name and is related to the UK public.

Google has no problem with this :)

However on Ask.co.uk we come pretty high in "General/Global" search, but if you choose "Show UK websites only" we are nowhere to be seen.

This leads me to believe that Teoma is not basing its results on domain extension or specific text content related to the UK, but instead going by where the site is hosted.

Now I am sure we all appreciate that Ask.co.uk visitors are only 1 step above Aol users, and these intelligent people are very prone to searching for UK specific sites, so in other words we are losing out.

Your thoughts on the above would be appreciated.

Google's been doing similar for awhile. There isn't too much I can think of that you can do, but make sure your bases are covered with multiple domains. That, and put the .co.uk in the Uk.

AJ's pretty solid over there aren't they? Worth the trouble isn't it?

3mths for a reply.

probably similar to the amount of traffic Teoma sends over :)
