Webmasters Report July 2008 Google.co.uk SERP Changes

Last month, we started reporting on Google.co.uk as perceived by webmasters. We may make this a regular column depending on how different Google.co.uk seems to be from Google.com over time.

WebmasterWorld members are reporting extreme "yoyoing" and fluctuations of some rankings on old domains.

Another observation is that the geolocation seems to be shifting -- again. .co.uk pages are showing up on page one, whereas .com pages are showing up on page 2. In other words, improvements are being noted.

Some feel that Google in the UK is penalizing harsher than in the US.

And finally, Google is still not sure about the locations of some posts. A webmaster reports:

Meanwhile G has moved a load of my .coms hosted on a US server back into the Google.co.za results...argh...what are they doing?

Forum discussion continues at WebmasterWorld.
