.uk domains are now up for grabs

Recommended Posts

This news is late but the expiration date that .co.uk domain owners had to reserve the .uk version of their domain name expired in July.

To localize your site to the UK region, you will have to mess around editing your code or Wordpress theme.

For Google/Yandex:

<html lang='en-GB'>


<link rel="alternate" hreflang="en-US" href="https://the-exact-link-of-the-page.uk/whatever-content"></link>

For Bing:

<meta content='UK' name='locale'>
<meta content='en-GB' name='culture'>
<meta content='£' name='currency'>

This works for multiple regions that speak English, such as Canada and Australia, but you'll have to modify your code appropriately.

That code should localize the site to the region with out backlinks but, obviously you won't rank very well with out some.
