No Listing In "pages From The Uk"

I SEO a Florida Property rental site, and 90% of their visitors are being tagged as 'US' but I know this is not the case, as the syntax they are searching for tells me otherwise 'holiday villas florida' & 'rent florida holiday home' this is UK syntax not US, where 'Florida vacation villa rental' or 'vacation rentals Florida' are the norm.
I have found that one of the GREAT truisms on web stats are :-
There are lies, damn lies, and statistics

Thanks OWG for the input - I'll stop worrying about this one.

If I have a domain.COM hosted in the USA I am unlikely to be in the google UK search (and this is all true for me at present anyway - web position gold reports I should just 'wait').
But if I have a domain.COM hosted in the UK I will be in the google UK search AND also in the google international search (google.com).
If I have a domain.CO.UK hosted either in the USA or the UK I will show up in the google UK search.
What if I have a domain.CO.UK hosted in the USA - will I get the best of both worlds as a result of this? In other words will I be listed with both google UK and google international?
And to throw the spanner into the works, what if I registered a domain.UK.COM name? What the heck would that do?????

A uk.com domain is treated as a .com. It is not a top level domain - it is a subdomain of uk.com - no different from having mmt.freeserve.com which is subdomain of freeserve.com.

It's a shame the .COM doesn't get listed in the UK search. I assume if I wanted to use the .COM for both listings I should get the .COM hosted with a UK hosting company - then I won't have to worry about having both a .CO.UK and .COM.
