Hi Guys,

As it's December 1st tomorrow, let me be the first to wish you all a merry crimble!

Now I feel a bit like Robbie Williams - I've made it in the UK, but no-one in the States knows me. Now he had a US home and lived there for 4 years or so, neither of which I have. I have only my .co.uk Home and am wondering if there is any way of getting a UK site to register higher in the States.

If I start to spell things the Amerian way, will I go down in the UK rankings? Should I just feel happy with the UK market?

My tracking shows that I am doing better in the States on some keywords, but dont know why. I would appreciate any insights as to how to make the same page rank high in both these markets.

Salut from Le Midi!

B.

In part, where you host the site will make a difference.

In addition, the .co.uk may not be so appealing to a US audience and a .com would look more likely to be aimed at a US audience.

It's as if you have to Internationali(s)ze your site, too. US spelling and phrases will help you appear in the SERPs for phrases North American's would use.
