.co.uk .com problem
domain issue

My site is listed on Fast with a .com domain. However this poses problems as lycos.co.uk (using Fast data) filters searches and excludes my site. As my site is aimed at a UK market this is rather annoying. I have tried submitting a .co.uk domain to alltheweb but it only seems to spider and update pages listed under .com.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can remove the indexing of my site under .com and get the site listed under my .co.uk domain instead?

Hi Dawlish, how have you set up the .co.uk?
Is it as a separate site, or a redirect?

If it is a separate site, and a direct copy of the .com address you may fall foul of the site being seen as a mirror. That's not good.
If it is a redirect to the .com address, then, that just won't cut the mustard. You have to have a separate site on the .co.uk domain. You'd want to have the .com redirect to the .co.uk (although, I'd always advise agains redirects, unless you have to).

Dawlish. I have had the exact same problem with Fast for months, I suppose I should really do something about it :)
