Google UK no longer listing Non co.uk domains?
.com .net .org no longer listed under "pages from the UK"

 12:20 pm on Aug 8, 2006 (gmt 0)

Just checked Google UK, and a bit horrified being a .com site owner of a UK specific site. On selecting "pages from the UK" only .co.uk domains are being listed right now .. I just hope that its a temporary thing.

Nope I don't see this. I done a search for a general travel term, came up with 4 .com's page one and the rest .co.uk's.

Dont worry, not good for your health.

Slight correction here. Though from what I can see here .. most urls of non .co.uk domains are not there .. but some urls are still there in the index. (looks like less than 10% are there)

Talking of my site .. the urls that are still there in the index are mostly deep urls which are probably least crawled.

Any one else noticing this?

Jaysus Jaski, add a question mark next time, you nearly gave me a heart attack!

I am sorry for causing so big an alarm glengara .. may be it was just a datacenter update thing .. but I just checked again and the home page of my site is still filtered out on an important serp I track, when I select UK pages, which otherwise ranks fine.

Depends on your search terms.

.co.uk will be favored - as will locally hosted domains. But .com can do OK if geared to the local market.

Something has definately changed here this weekend.

I am experiencing the exactly same. I use a.uk.com hosted in a UK datacenter and have ranked well within the UK for years this weekend has seen me dissappear from the uk serps.

There is a well known ladies cosmetics brand (**** calling) in the UK who advertise on the TV. They use the extentsion .uk.com and are suffering exactly the same.
