I am going to try your 'Parking' trick over the weekend, i'm still a bit confused over the finer details, but Randy has been the nice guy that he is and given me a PM with more details, So I got enough to crack on with.
Funny he was very insistent that it was your parking idea and not his, hopefuly not trying to avoid any flack, but more giving credit where credit is due.
The hosting server location and TLD to decide GEO-Location of a compnay is well complete and utter rubbish IMHO, as I've tried to explain on WPW (wow they can bitch over there!), I drive an itallian car, but i'm not itallian and I didn't buy it in italy!
They have even suggested buying your domain from a UK country specific registrar (which it was anyway) or getting IBL's from UK, all of which is just BS if true. If this is how the SE's decide on GEO-Location, I think this is one area of the Web that needs a serious re-think.
I'm UK , because I'm UK, I was born in England, I'm English, I reside in England. I am an English man who lives in England , thus making me be an MBE (Member of the British Empire) and hold a passport for the United Kingdom of Britain....
It seems if someone from outer mongolia buys a .co.uk domain and hosts it using a UK web host company, they are going to be considered more British than me, yeah go figure, what
There's gotta be a better way surely!
