Some sites that I submitted to av.com that are undisputedly for the UK (but they're .net) have been put through to av.co.uk and are now nowhere to be seen on av.com. It took about three weeks in the case of my last submission to get into .com and then be transferred to av.co.uk. To me, that says they are really on the ball.
Funnily enough, this started happening just after I mentioned on searchengineforum.com that I only submit to av.com and the results filter through to av.co.uk anyway.
I suppose this means the rumours that UK sites are going to be confined to av.co.uk are more than just rumours.
BTW, I have .co.uk sites in AV.com that are arguably for a global audience and they've been left alone.
Since AV settled down I haven't had any probs getting .co.uk sites in there. I started doing SEO when AV were dropping pages like crazy, so I wasn't too impressed with it, but now I quite like it. But it's taken a year for some people to get in? Ouch!
