    I've seen a few of my competitors and event some clients have been moving their sites from .co.uk to .com recently.

    My site currently operates on .co.uk, but I own the .com and .uk , is it worth moving over and if so, which would anyone recommend?

    I only operate in the UK and only want business from here (if that matters).

    If there are no plans to look for clients outside of the UK I really would not pay any attention to your competitors and keep it on the .co.uk

    There is no real SEO advantage in the above situation and to migrate to a .com will mean some minor SEO losses if it is performed well and a total mess if done badly.

    Leave it alone!

    .co.uk is fine.

    Thanks Stephen & Fisicx!

    Knowing that I'd be doing it myself, the chances of making a mistake are higher than hiring someone that has experience, so it can stay right where it is.

    I don't think you need to do it, leave it alone and just keep on working what you have been.

    There is no point to move to a .com domain. These days many clients and businesses want to move to .uk domain because of the length of the domain name - there is no SEO-related value.
