So, it's easy (relatively) to get listed in av uk but the results do seem very spammy. Looks like a simple algo (different from av.com) where the title still plays the major role.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Just a quick question.If I submit to av.com does it mean I will get into av.co.uk as well? I have a no.2 ranking in av.com but in uk nothing.Do I need to submit to uk seperately?
Thanks.

I've always submitted to AV.co.uk direct as I don't think .com passes the URL on, the submit URL is on the first page at the bottom.

If you however submit to .co.uk it will also give you the option to submit to .com

AV.com definitely does pass on the results to UK AV. I submitted a UK site to altavista.com, and it got indexed and went through to the UK site in two or three weeks. It does have UK in the title though, which might have helped them? So I'm not flatly contradicting tigger, but my experience was different.
Definitely different algo as well, for a two word phrase in the UK the site's #1,(used to be top five slots!) In altavista.com the site's #65.
Title's a good bet. Make's sense in this case, anyway.

Knoxy,
I highly recommend you submit to av uk because it uses a different spider and will index the site much faster than av.com

As tigger mentioned, by submitting to av.uk you have the option for submitting to av.com too.

Georged,
av.com is trying to build its db and it is quite likely to be sharing .co.uk, etc, addresses, along with uk-based IPs, but, if you want to be sure to get in the index, submit to av.uk first.

Preference in av.uk is given to .co.uk, etc., domains.
