Yet again, I dunno bazza.
I think this query is getting a bit more complicated than I envisaged.
All I really want is the option that used to be there on the initial results page on the left hand side about halfway down that said select " Pages From ," - Worldwide or UK pages only.
There are times that I want to see results from anywhere and everywhere and other times, when shopping for instance, that I want to see results from UK only. I used to be able to do this but now seemingly can't.
Done a bit more research and it seems that Google is using my IP address and seems to think I'm in Norwich, not ideal. Can't see an easy way of changing this and in any case it would not help in what I perceive to be the problem. In fact setting a physical location could make things more restrictive.
By the way, I don't use the Google Tool Bar so I suspect that there are some aspects of Google that I can't change without this, which I really don't want.
For instance, lets say I want info about my Alfetta, lots of good sites scattered around the World. Will I now have to trawl through all the UK based pages before finding sites such as the USA Alfa BB ?
( Obviously I have lots of these bookmarked but you can see what I mean regarding finding info. )
Thanks for all your help and suggestions folk, I'm going to pack it in for today and will return for more head scratching tomorrow, must be a glutton for punishment !
