I have a site that turns up in significantly different positions for some terms on .com and uk. but there is no or very little difference between the two for other terms.

The two word term that shows the biggest difference is one which caused us problems on Google with the Florida update. I came to the conclusion at the time that this was indicative of an error in Google's semantic algorithm element. One of the words has a completely different meaning in American English to UK English. I wonder if this indicates that Yahoo are playing around with semantic indexing.

I'd be very interested to hear other folf's experiences.
