hi there.
My site was origionaly on a .co.uk domain name last year i built a second home page aimed more at US users and bought the .com version of the name and had the domain pointing at the new page. now i have the entire site hosted on the .co.uk server with a redirect from another isp (using the .com name) point at another page. The .co.uk page seams to do pretty well on most search engines but the .com doesnt do so well. could this be because it isnt actualy a page and just a redirect and therefore the spider cant find any page content? should i move the .com side of the site onto another server and treat them as two different sites?

all advice gratefully received . thanks.:)

This is question has come up a fair few times before. Try this search [searchengineworld.com] to find some good discussions.

If you have enough unique content I would create a new separate site. Cross link the domains and try and get directory listings for your new site.
