Be aware that with yourdomain.uk.com you're not actually buying a domain name, but a subdomain of uk.com.

You shouldn't have a problem in a general search of the major engines. Regionally focued searches may be a problem.
However, I'm far from an expert on this subject :)

I presume you mean when searching for UK only sites on Google?

You can do this, it's ok.
I see people get #1 listings and they use this:
and it works i can see that, they rank mostly higher than me.
But that's not difficult this month my listings drop out of google like dead birds drop out of a tree.

re regional searches
If your site is being hosted in the uk, then a .com domain will show up in "uk only" searches.
If your site is .co.uk and hosted outside the UK, it will also appear in "uk only" searches.
The question is... will your .uk.com be hosted within the UK? If not, you will not appear in UK searches.
Also, AOL, when doing a 'uk only' search, will only give priority to .co.uk domains for their 'google filtered' results. (when I last checked!)
I would get a .co.uk domain to be safe :)

|If youve got the cash to spare, take a look at .tc domain names ( and other low subscription TLD's )|
I've had quite a bit of success with these as yourkeyword.tc is more than often available ( such as cannabis.tc (not mine and still free btw)). Google seems not to mind about these ( not that they can't change their mind and cotton on and drop them !?! )
.tc & a few other domains can be registered at http://www.adamsnames.tc for around $50 per annum.
