Google auto-detects your whereabouts to get local search results

Google auto-detects your whereabouts to get local search results

Until now, people have used country-specific domains to receive Google search results optimized for that particular region.

Google has announced that the way it displays search results to users is changing. This won't change if you try to make a Google search from google.co.uk or google.co.au.

Well, if you travel a lot and this news has you troubled, we have a solution for you. For example, residents of Russia if in the address bar of a search engine write google domain Japan.co.jp, it would still appear the Russian website and news.




You can force search results to be directed to whatever country you like by changing some options. Previously, the results you received for an worldwide search were based on the country code selected. The said policy is also consistent with how Google already manages its services across a number of our other platforms, including YouTube, Blogger, Google Earth and Gmail, among others. The feature seems to be tailored most toward travelers: Google says that if you visit another country, it'll automatically serve results local to where you're visiting, then switch back again as soon as you arrive home. Your choice will appear at the bottom of the page.

On the Settings page, look for the heading that says Region for Search Results. The tech titan has moved away from relying on country-specific domains to serve up localized results on mobile web, the Google app for iOS, as well as Search and Maps for desktop.

Kao has noted that this update will only modify the way Google Search and Maps services are labeled, adding that "it will not affect the way these products work, nor will it change how we handle obligations under national law".
