Google provides search results customized for many countries. This modifies the results for any search term by giving preference to sites that cater to that country or which are in the language that is spoken by the country the user is in. This is the reason why a person in France would get redirected to www.google.fr or a user in Japan would get redirected to www.google.co.jp when www.google.com is typed.

If you do not want this to be done and would like to be able to access to the Google server in USA, you can do that in the following ways:

  • change your language settings, you have the link to do that just beside your search box
  • use the link www.google.com/ncr instead of just www.google.com
