Over the last week or so I've seen a lot of .co.uk and US hosted .com's in the top 10 Australian results (when searching from .com.au without the "only australian" checked).

Anyone else?

Here's a recent video from Matt Cutts about foreign sites in the UK results [youtube.com] - it sounds like a parallel situation.

Thanks Tedster. The problem is a lot worse than he makes out though.

Yep, I'm seeing foreign MFA sites that have a .net/.com/.org extension and hosted in the US in AU results - even with "Pages from Australia" selected.
