Change in Google's domain won't give results from another country

Google no longer lets you change domains to search different countries

Google is going to make a big change that would restrict the search results of users to their specific location. You'll know the location Google recognizes by looking at the lower left-hand corner of the page, as you can see above. The search giant however, says that this will bring more localised and useful results to users.

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

"If you live in Australia, you'll automatically receive the country service for Australia, but when you travel to New Zealand, your results will switch automatically to the country service for New Zealand".

However, if a user wishes to get relevant search results in a particular country while being in a different location, then the user can manually change the location settings.

Google itself automatically redirects you to the country domain corresponding to your location.

Official Google representatives have confirmed the information that now in the popular search engine will be impossible to find news in other regions.

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

Google says that the change was made because of the importance of location related searches these days, which now account for one in five searches. While the default option has usually forced you to the local search site - enter google.com and you get redirected to google.com.au - it has been possible to push Google to other locations. The major drawback of this update can be like if a person is traveling from the USA to Japan and he wants to search restaurant near his hotel in Japan which he has booked, then he will get results for the USA itself.
