FAQs » 29. Will my site appear on the global search engines?
Once submitted your site will appear on both the global (.com) search engines and the UK specific search engines (.co.uk). By default the global search engines will include your website, once it has been accepted into their database, no matter whether your web address ends in “.com” or “.co.uk”. If your site has a UK suffix (.co.uk) it will also be accepted into the UK version of each engine. If however you have a non-geographical extension (.com/.org/.biz etc) and are based in the UK the search engines will ascertain the geo-location of your IP address and include your site in the UK engines too based on this information.
