Why don't you call Google and ask them these questions. I did that, and have
found them to be very helpful. They explained stuff to me that I didn't
know. They will also help you optimize your adwords ads if you want.

Hi All,

We have a client who appears in the top ten natural listings on Google for
two search terms: 'monicon' and 'cirrus noise meters'.  Their site is

If we switch from search 'the web' to 'pages from the UK' they are no longer
listed in the top ten, or in the case of 'cirrus noise meters' in the top

I understand that Google tries to serve local results depending on the
location of the user making the search.  Could this be affecting the
behaviour noted above - ie. does Google think they are based in the USA?
The web server they are on probably has a US IP address.

The company is listed Google Local Business Centre if that has any bearing
on the situation.

They have another domain: egm-ltd.co.uk which they recently setup to point
to the .com, not sure how as they did that themselves.

Any ideas how we can figure what causes them not to be found in the UK
specific search results and more importantly, how we can start to get them
in there.
