I've got a .com site targeting a uk audience hosted in the uk but Google has only included it in the worldwide search. When filtered on "results from the uk" no pages appear.

How can I change this?

Cheers!

I would check alltheweb.com for other .com domains on your IP (or class C) to see if they're listed; it sounds as if you're on a UK IP that Google thinks is outside the UK.

I'd be tempted to check the location of your IP with traceroute as a lot of UK providers use servers in the US, and also the RIPE records as sometimes the IP range is registered to a parent company.

At least one major hosting provider has some UK servers recognised as being in the UK by Google, and others that are not.

I have a question on a similar note:
I've got a .uk.com site that is hosted in the US, but Google doesnt seem to think it has any right being included in UK searches.

Does anyone have any info about how g views .uk.com sites?

Hi

.uk.com is treated as a .com

You will either have to get UK hosting or change to a .co.uk
