    Yes, you can.

    If you want to rank highly on google.co.uk (slightly at the expense of your ranking on google.com) then you'll have the best chance by using a .uk domain-name and by having your site hosted inside the UK. This can sometimes make quite a big difference, actually.

    If you use an international TLD (like .com) and your site's hosted in America, then you're likely to rank very slightly more easily on google.com, but that will typically be at the expense of your UK ranking.

    You should be asking these questions here, really: Adsense / PPC / SEO Discussion Forum , so don't be amazed if the thread gets deleted.

    Yes ".com" will be ranked more highly than a ".cn" or a ".fm" or co.uk .
    Google uses at least 180 different factors when it calculates Search Engine Results Placement (SERPs)
    Remember that customers have a higher degree of confidence buying from a ".com" company than a ".co.uk" or ".cz" company, so my opinion is that .com has bigger value and caries more weight than .co.uk

      Not British customers, buying inside the UK.

      From the perspective of "customer perception", it's not nearly such a big deal now as it was a few years ago, because ".com" is more acceptable in the UK now than it was, but if you have (as I do) a UK-only niche, then it's clearly right - for that niche site - to use a .uk domain-name and to have your hosting within the UK. Both from the customer reaction aspect and obviously the SEO aspect.

      And here's that nice yellow-boy Cutts, from Google, to explain why ...

        I agree with you but I'm talking about customers in general out of UK ..It's better to have ".com" and "tld"

          Sorry to appear argumentative, Mary, but this is simply incorrect: the link-juice of backlinks is not dependent in any way on the domain extension of the site on which the backlinks are located (and it never has been!). :rolleyes:

          It's because people believe myths like this that they imagine (for example) that ".edu backlinks" are "worth extra". It's all nonsense - purely a myth. A backlink "from a .com" is worth no more than one from any other kind of domain. What determines its linkjuice value to you is primarily the relevance of its site (not its page) to your site - as assessed by Google's algorithm according to mutuality of keywords, etc.

          The reality is here: http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...ml#post4777928

    Google is moving more towards the personalized search, which means no two people will see the same results when they perform keyword searches.

    For Example, if you're logged into Google and do a search for something, the results that show up may be heavily influenced by who is in your social circles in the Google Plus Network.

    Some Points to improve your Rank in Google :
    • Keep meaningful text in Your Title Tag
    • Improve Keyword Density
    • Your Content & Link should Focus on quality over quantity
    • Advertising does not interfere with the content on the page
