Non UK .org Website Stuck In Google.co.uk

Strange situation. I built a website about 6 months ago, it's a US server based .org. Recently the website received some good backlinks, and rocketed to the #1 search position in Google.co.uk for it's main keywords. Depsite this, it performs poorly in Google.com, even though it has nothing to do with the UK.

I would like to rank the site in Google.com, because it will receive 5 times the traffic, so would like to figure out this problem. Could my UK listing be due to too many UK backlinks, though my backlinks seem well diversified amongst English speaking countries.

The Whois details are and have always been US based.

too many UK backlinks

That would be my thought too, try to get more US links from sites hosted there.

A good UK listing need not prevent a good G.com listing, and I'd certainly not throw it away!

G.com is always a tougher nut to crack, simply because the competiton is way more than five times the size.

Also, with new sites, serps should not be seen as permanent, anyway.

I'd just do what needs to be done for G.com listings, and be grateful for an enhanced UK audience while it lasts.
