Now, Google search results to be country-specific by default

  • Google no longer lets you change domains to search different countries

Google has announced that the way it displays search results to users is changing.

And this applies even when you travel from one country to another, for example from the U.S. to India. For example, even if you are now using.co.uk domain, still you will get the info of the country you are now in. At the bottom of the search page you can also see the country service now being used. "Also, at the bottom of the search results page, you can see which country service you are now using", writes Google.

According to a blog post, the choice of country service will no longer be indicated by domain - you'll be served the country service that corresponds to your location. Previously, the results you received for an global search were based on the country code selected. This is emphasized in the case of travelers, where users will automatically get local results for the country they're visiting, and then return to seeing results based on their home when they return.

A cleaner, safer web with Chrome Cleanup
ESET is best known for offering a range of antivirus and security suite solutions for home and business users. Google also made a decision to completely redesign Chrome Cleanup to make it both simpler and more powerful.


The country codes in Google's top-level domain names don't mean anything anymore.

This change will shadow all the platforms - Desktop, web, app and mobile web.

Google also says that the change will not impact some of the legal requirements countries have under national law. This can be done from the settings menu of Google.com where you can go to search settings and pick a new location. The reason is that every fifth request to the search engine associated with the actual location of the person. Now, your location will determine the kind of search results you'll get - you could go to google.com.nz, for instance, but if you're in Australia, you'll still get results tailored to your current location.
