I read a good few posts on this forum for the question of GeoTargeting, none seemed to quite answer my question.

A customer has 3 domains;
www.mydomain.com
www.mydomain.ie
www.mydomain.co.uk

The company is based in Ireland with offices in the UK (Hosting is in the USA)

Each domain name is pointing at the (same) homepage of the website.

With each domain i have used Google WebMaster Tools to set the Geographic Target, in the hope of getting a decent ranking for each country.

It just so happens that the UK is its main market at the moment, and although it ranks fairly well on a 'Search the web' search on www.google.co.uk, it does not rank well on 'pages in the UK'. My WebMaster Tools Dashboard tells me that the .co.uk domains 'Site is not indexed'.

Logic tells me that i am trying to 'have my cake and eat it', but i have to ask the question; Is there something i am missing. Should i for example have created a landing page that holds UK content (what might UK Content be when the site is entirely in English?) and point the .co.uk domain at this 'sub-page'.

Regards

Andy

If that was too dumb a question apologies, i have searched and read this forum and elsewhere, but either this is a complex subject or i am not looking in the right areas.

Can anyone point me to a good source. I guess my question is;

A Client wants to rank better in a google.co.uk search (pages form the UK), a .co.uk web page exists, what can i TRY to do to improve their SER?
