It has been years since we talked about Google tailoring the search results based on your location. It is well known, that if you conduct a search in London, you may get different results for the same search conducted in New York.

Typically, Google will show sites that they believe are more relevant for that location. What makes a site more relevant in a specific location? The TLD, the server location, the language used on the site, the company address listed on the site and other characteristics that may suggest a geo specific attribute.
