Google Changed The Way It Works

From Google:

“Today, we’ve updated the way we label country services on the mobile web, the Google app for iOS, and desktop Search and Maps. Now the choice of country service will no longer be indicated by domain. Instead, by default, you’ll be served the country service that corresponds to your location. So 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. Upon return to Australia, you will seamlessly revert back to the Australian country service.”


At the time, it seemed this update was more of a minor change, when trying to check international results. Instead of going to the version of Google for a particular country, the results were now based on your location or the location in your Google settings.

Google stated:
“This update will help ensure that you get the most relevant results based on your location.”

This seemingly minor change actually had a huge impact for websites operating in multiple markets.
