Hi Brendan,

I just came across this thread. I'm based in Buncrana in Donegal and this is a commonproblem for many businesses around here on the border with Derry who want to rank well in Google.co.uk as well. I've touched on it in my blog http://localonlinemarketingsolutions.com/blog/how-to-target-the-uk-with-a-ie-tld-website but that is more directed at businesses setting up a new website and I can see that your site is pretty well established so I would recommend maybe creating a subdomain e.g. www.uk.ishkasports.com with pretty much a mirror of your main site but alter the content to include references to UK customers and obviously show prices in £ stg. Then create a seperate sitemap etc. for this subdomain and geotarget the UK in webmaster tools. Then as davidbrett says try and get some nice UK links to your subdomain. I know it's a lot of work but apart from that the only sure fire way of ranking well in the UK is setting up a seperate .co.uk site. Your host being based in the UK shouldn't do any harm either although the relevance of server location is unclear. There are many debates on this subject but as blacknight mentioned on one of these discussions the problem is it's all hear-say.

Barr setting up a separate .co.uk domain though, I would recommend creating a uk targetted subdomain.

Anyway...I've just realised I'm on a forum discussing SEO on Christmas day....I need to get a life lol!

Happy Christmas
