can you explain?
Quite simple. This site was originally constructed on a .com in 1999 and did well until this last 12 months when it started losing SERPs positions for seemingly no reason.
I watched those SERPs and realised more and more .co.uk site were taking over from .coms therefore we bought the .co.uk name, uploaded the entire site to the .co.uk, once the .co.uk had propagated I 301d the .com to the .co.uk and removed the entire .com site, that's how it remains.
This way it still retains all the benefits of old directory listings, links etc without having to ask anyone to change their sites.
