co.uk vs .com - which domain name?

We currently have a .com domain name. We are UK based and would expect most – but not all – of our site visitors to come from the UK.

Given that we are in the relatively early stages of developing our site, should we change our domain name from .com to .co.uk. We own both domains.

If most of your clients will be coming from the UK, then I'd recommend setting up a .co.uk site. I'm sure you notice that .co.uk sites often turn up higher in the SE's because you're searching from within the UK.

Why not point both domains to the same site?
