A couple of weeks ago there was a thread about site: in the .co.uk index, it is still broken, even doing site:www.google.co.uk so its not just my sites.

Seems to just show a canonical mess, home pages not top, some not even found! supps all over the show.

Anyone any idea whats up?

BDW, so if you do site:goog.com then goog.co.uk you see the same results?

I get perfect results for .com site: search but a total mess for the same search but with the uk only option, this is the first result

www.google.co.uk/products/reviews?fq=&cid=178da50754e4299a&sort=2&q=%22people+found%22&sa... - 20k - Supplemental Result

Ping google.com - 64.233.169.147
Ping google.co.uk - 64.233.169.103

EDIT: This is the same with Firefox or IE, logged in or logged out.

Yes, I see what you mean.

Using google.co.uk, select the "Pages from the UK" option, then try a site:www.google.co.uk search.

Using the default "the web" option returns normal results.

Would imagine it's just a bit of a screwy site operator, than anything that'd affect rankings.

i think that thread was about a number of .uk sites disappearing from google - didn't matter if we did site: or not, the site had gone
one of mine completely disappeared from google on 6th or 7th june, around same time as the other .uk sites disappeared
