    What are free and paid UK search engines and PPC search engines that has good traffic other than Espotting? Where do you guys usually promote for UK audiences?

    I don't bother with UK specific search engines.
    The traffic seems to find me from Google.co.uk whether I want it or not :rolleyes:

    I've not used it, but the UK version of Oversure charges 5p min a click.. what a ripoff.

    Wot Guffy said.

    I also use local directories. To find them I just search on Google for the area i.e. weddings, and then go through the listings searching for directories.

    There's lots of very small local directories listed in localities in the ODP that might be happy to take a listing.. at the very least it could help with pagerank.

    If you have a .co.uk, then use all the paid inclusion programs for Inktomi, AV, Lycos, Teoma - plus submit to Looksmart UK and Yahoo UK. You do need to have a real UK presence for your business for these last two, though.

    Potentially, a .co.uk can receive far more traffic than any .com, as the UK versions of the major search engines often have a UK only search option which filters out .com sites. However, the international versions of the search engines (ie: google.com) don't filter out any extension. So a top ten result in av.com, lycos.com and google.com will often mean a #1 in lycos.co.uk, google.co.uk (uk sites search) and altavista.co.uk .

    Also you need to remember that altavista.co.uk and lycos.co.uk deliver more traffic than their .com counterparts.

    That's some great info. Thanks.

    Can you recommend a good & cheap registrar of .co.uk domains? I can use your affiliate link if you have one.

    Don't have an affiliate link but I use www.easily.co.uk and www.freeparking.co.uk - there are others that seem cheaper, but they often have hidden costs and, frankly, I don't trust them.

    I have 5 domains registered at 123-reg and I'm happy with their service so far, and they're cheap. Affiliate link: http://www.123-reg.co.uk/affiliate.cgi?id=AF22881
