Be Seen With a UK.COM Domain:
Websites published on UK.COM domains very often occupy prime position in search results in the UK.
Opinions vary as to whether this is because the smartest web publishers choose .UK.COM domains or whether it is UK.COM's powerful combination of the global preference for .com and the regional specificity of UK that contribute most to the remarkable search engine rankings achieved by .UK.COM websites.
The domain names ending with uk.com present no more of a challenge than .co.uk or .com domain names for achieving excellent search engine rankings, even for competitive keywords. In fact, and on the contrary, these domains represent just about the only remaining opportunity to get your target phrase into the domain which can really help shorten the SEO process.
