A few variables I left out: it a .com domain, there are .co.uk sites linking to it, I rank #1 in all search engines for my keywords, and the domain had been established 5 years. Along with other comments, I did not see an increase in traffic. (Although I did not see a decrease) I would imagine most people do not click the "pages from the UK" radio button. I just checked, and my traffic did go up since last time I looked but it was because Wikipedia linked to me. It has actually surpassed my Google hits. Which is odd, considering I am above Wikipedia for the same keywords, which must mean more people are using Wikipedia to do searches than Google. (LOL) Ok, back on topic, I'd carefully consider your goals before paying for a high priced European server (or wherever you are targeting.) If you just want to increase traffic but you don't care where it comes from, I am guessing USA visitors will be your biggest group.
