Google No More Allow Users to Change Domains for Searching Various Countries

Google no longer lets you change domains to search different countries

Google says it's confident the change will bring you an improved search experience and give you the most useful information based on your search query and other contexts, including location.

Well, if you travel a lot and this news has you troubled, we have a solution for you. For example, even if you are now using.co.uk domain, still you will get the info of the country you are now in. To see which country service you're now receiving just look at the bottom of the search results page. 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. In addition, at the bottom of the search results page, the country service now in use can be clearly seen.


Overall, the motive of Google here is providing the best services to it's users. Previously, the results you received for an global search were based on the country code selected.

Scroll down to find Settings at the bottom of the page.


Google has made a major change in its Google Search section. The reason is that every fifth request to the search engine associated with the actual location of the person.

The update has been implemented for Google Search on the desktop and mobile, Google Search iOS app, and Google Maps.


The country codes in Google's top-level domain names don't mean anything anymore. However previously users were able to circumvent this by going to a different Google top level domain, like Google.br, Google.com.sg, Google.com.my, to try and get search results in that particular country.
