    Default Domain Question

    Hi All,

    Just wondering from the experts how much of a problem would it be only have the .co.uk domain?

    I'm trying to decide if i should target it 100% to UK people or try targetting it for uk and people outside the uk but all on the .co.uk domain?

    Do you think it would put off none uk surfers?

    Thanks!

    You could try like every one here .com for US and the new .eu.uk for Europe

    Hi,

    The .com version of my .co.uk I cant get unless I pay $10,000 so i dont really want to go spending that until I've got the .co.uk making money but I wondering will I be limiting myself by only using the .co.uk and getting uk traffic?

    Where would you say most of traffic is for surfers looking to go on casinos?

    Thanks

    This will give you an idea of where searches are coming from on google


    Keyword: casino
    http://www.google.com/trends?q=casino

    Keyword: Poker
    http://www.google.com/trends?q=poker...ate=all&sort=0

    Keyword: Online casino
    http://www.google.com/trends?q=onlin...ate=all&sort=0

    keyword: online poker
    http://www.google.com/trends?q=onlin...ate=all&sort=0

    I'm surprised South Africa is leading the pack when it comes to casinos, I had no idea.

    I agree, I have a few .co.uk targeting purely the UK market and it's not a problem. I don't believe I lose much traffic to the .com version of my names either.

    My blog's domain is also .co.uk but I target my traffics from anywhere. Local UK SEs must be ranking my site higher but I tend to target more other than UK, so it's not really an issue if your domain contains such local labelling.
