I have a site which gets very few visitors and its based in the UK (on a UK host), its a .org and there are not many searches for the terms that the site ranks for in the UK, however, when I look at the number of searches for keywords which the site ranks for in the US there are a lot (>10 compared to something like 400 per month).

The site is a bit of a hobby project and not something I can ever see been a huge money maker other than a few adsense clicks. The site ranks on the first page of google for some terms and has the number 1 spot for a search term that is not very common in the UK but gets a lot of US searches.

It is currently showing up around page 3 for people who are searching from the US and I wanted to get everyones thoughts on moving the site onto a US based host, I think that this could improve the rankings a lot but is there any way to guess as to the impact that is would have? I would like to take advantage of the US searches and would gladly bin off the handful of UK based visitors I get in exchange for the US ones given the volume!
