No ideas, but we are in the same situation. Host a .com in Canada, but are a UK business. We do have a .co.uk portal (duplicated home page that links to the .com) but it's less than ideal, so I'd be interested to hear what you discover.

If you want a .com hosted in America, then what can a search engine use to determine you are from the UK?

My experience is, in order to do well in both .com and .co.uk, at the moment, is to host in the US (or on a US IP at least) with a .co.uk tld.
Does anyone have any stats as to how many searchers actually click the "sites in the UK" radio button?

I would expect that a significant proportion of google.co.uk users do use the radio button, there is no other reason to pick .co.uk over the .com version.

I would expect the same Ian. In which case the real question is how many people use google.co.uk.....

Exactly the topic we are currently discussing in this thread.
