After so many years, you must have been familiar with using Google to search everything and get results you need. No need to praise Google’s powerful search capabilities and the smart search experience it provides any longer. Today, I want to show you two ways to view google results for custom countries after Google has removed the location search filter in November 2015.

For some purposes, we need to search and view some results from different locations and courtiers. For example, you may want to view country-specific results from UK while you are living in DE. Before the small change had announced, we could google results from a particular region by typing country-specific domains, like www.google.com.uk. However, this is no longer available because Google’s ambition of making search results more local and relevant. So, if you are living you DE, when you type the domain name like www.google.com.uk, Google will redirect you to your location automatically.

No alternative methods to handle this issue? What could I do if my boos ask me to gather some information about our company brand in other countries or do global marketing research? The answer is no. In this post, I will walk you through two methods to view Google results for other countries.

Method 1: Change Google Search country services.

Although Google encourages you to search based on your current location and has removed the search tool, you can still visit search setting to choose the desired country for implementation.

1. Click “Search settings” below Google search box, just as the image shows below;

go to google search settings

2. Head to “Region Settings” and choose the country you would like to get the search results from.

configure google region settings

3. Hit “Save” and back to the search page to enter your keywords.

Method 2: Use the command line to get results for custom countries.

Alternatively, we can use the command line in the search box for more accurate search results. What’s more, it is much more convenient than the first method as there is no need to change the settings back once again.

You can try the command line as followed:

Keywords inurl:.UK

or

Keywords site:.UK

UK means the United Kingdom. You can check the country abbreviations using the following forms. Search by “Ctrl + F”
