    Domain thoughts question
    If you want to market to people in Europe say England, should you buy an English based domain such as a co.uk or just continue with your usual .com domain?

    Anyone have any thoughts on this matter?

    Both, if you can.

    That said there's no shortage of ways you can design your site to really market to people from a specific place. These could be creative touches, such as logos which indicate you are a UK company, for example. This could also be achieved through SEO, and by engineering the text you use in your product pages/informational text.

    Google provides tools for this as well, and if you haven't already you should investigate what they're up to.

    ojmoo,

    Seems like you're looking for my Google.co.uk - .co.uk or .com Domains? thread.
