Have you ever experienced typing http://google.com in your web browser’s address bar and automatically get redirected to a local google domain? If you live in Australia for instance, you might find yourself redirected to the local domain of that specific region.

Modifying your Search Engine to Google.com

Google provides the most relevant results based on your search terms and also by detecting your IP address and redirecting you to country specific google domains. Google Redirect may be useful in a way that it would show local results and suggestions that is based on the search preference of people in your country. However, if you prefer to use the regular google.com website to search, you may follow the simple steps listed below.

Step One: Open your web browser.

There are a lot of web browsers that may be used to retrieve information from the World Wide Web. It doesn’t matter which one you choose, it will turn out just fine.

Step Two: Use the “/ncr” trick.

This step is pretty simple, all you have to do is type http://google.com/ncr and you will be able to visit the regular google.com website (ncr stands for no country redirection). Your browser’s cookie will be saved and you will not be redirected again. If you want to use your local google domain again you just have to clear the browser’s cookies.

Conclusion
