Google.com takes me to another Google page

Google Search has customized sites for many countries and regions around the world. For example, if you do a Google search in France, you’ll get search results on google.fr instead of google.com.

If we’re sending you to the wrong Google site, for example you’re located in Australia (www.google.com.au) but you’re being sent to the Google domain for the United Kingdom (www.google.co.uk), there are a few ways to get to another Google page.

Change the Google site you’re sent to

If we’re sending you to the wrong Google site, we may be detecting your IP address incorrectly. Please report the problem so that we can update your IP address to fix the issue. We can usually fix the problem pretty quickly but it may take up to a month.

Change your city or region

If your search location is in the wrong city or region but the Google site is correct, change your location on Google.

Visit Google.com instead of your local domain

If you want to use google.com instead of your local Google site, you can. To use google.com for searches, you have two options:

  • If you've been redirected by google.com to another google site (like google.fr), click the google.com link in the bottom right corner of any other Google page
  • Bookmark http://www.google.com/ncr. Anytime you visit this page, you’ll be taken to Google.com.
