I just noticed - i rank super high on yahoo.com but i rank much lower on yahoo.co.uk - the weird thing is the site is based in the UK, about a place in the UK, is it something to do with the fact Yola servers are in USA?

with the search 'hexham business' im number 1 @ yahoo.com even just the word hexham im number 5 - but on .co.uk i am much lower.

Any ideas why?

Maybe hexham is more popular on the yahoo.co.uk site so that's why your site is a bit lower?

When you search from the regular site (Not co.uk) yours comes out first since it has nothing else to find with the keywords "hexham" so if yours is indexed it will show up first.

However on .co.uk there will be more results since Hexham is in the United Kingdom, Such as a hotel example: Luxury hotel and there located in hexham they also have a website. They're keywords are "Hexham". Say they bough a Yahho! Directory listing then they will be on top.

but why wouldnt they also come up on the .com ? And why would they have nothing else to find on the .com, they have the same sites in the search results.The 2 sites are using different search methods.

I think its to do with where the servers are.

Hi Lee,

This is off topic, but I've been meaning to thank you for the great Wikipedia tip you gave me a little while back. Check this out:

I also managed to slot mine in on the top.

It's a very cool link to have, but I believe Wikipedia use the
nofollow HTML attribute on all of their links - bugger.
Still nice though!
