Tired of getting GoogleCanada or other countries @ google.com?

if you go to google.com and are always automatically redirected to the google page modified for your country, there's a neat way to bypass it... just go to http://www.google.com. (INCLUDE the period at the end)

just found it a couple days ago with a friend ;)

hehe Qumahlin... That's one of the (dis-)advantages of living "over there" ;)

btw. Is there an obvious diff. on the original google.com(dot) and my danish version (except the lang. of course!) ?
I mean, it's basically the same engine (=same search results) right ?

Damn - I get redirected to the danish google no matter how many periods I add in the address bar *lol*

OK... keep your US version for yourself :p

anyone who would like to use the us version of google and can't get that period thing to work (it gives me the "english" version). use one of these links instead.....

http://www.google.com/intl/en/
http://www.google.com/intl/us/

i personally guarantee it!

i don't know how the back end for google works but when altavista did the same thing ages ago, i know they didn't keep their databases synchronised very well and our local altavista search results were months old so i always use the us version!

If you have powertoys installed, you can set an alias character to represent a search engine. The way this can work to your advantage, is go to google.com and choose an advanced search and specify your goofy options like language, number of results, etc. and search for something simple like "BAR". Now copy the URL of the page you're at, and go into TweakUI to the search alias part and create a new alias "g". In the address of your search, past in that URL and replace BAR with %s, I think it is. (It'll say where to put the search terms.)

Now, whenever you want to search for something, to to IE/explorer/address bar and type "g search terms go here now" and it'll search with the settings you specified.
