Last year Google apparently decided that Jersey and the Channel Islands are not part of the UK, (technically true but for trade purposes they are considered within UK).
Now, Jersey based .coms identified from "whois" and hosting locations, are not appearing in google.co.UK serps. Has anyone else experienced this? I am not particularly technical but would appreciate any feedback, help, to find out if there is, or create, a best practice for this situation.

I once worked on a .com, hosted outside the uk, that (eventually) managed to get indexed in 'pages from the UK'. Here were the factors that may have solved it:
Good luck - I'd love to hear if you manage it.
