Google UK Filled with Aussi Sites?

Jul 3, 2008 - 7:31 am 0 by

Tamar covered the Google UK July report yesterday but I noticed a new observation from Gabs at Search Engine Roundtable Forums. Gabs pointed out that Google's UK search algorithm seems to be returning an unusual number of sites related to Australia.

He comments that the number one result for [how to cancel company registration] in Google UK search is an .AU TLD, the number six result is a .SG and the number nine result is a .NS. I personally see them at different positions, but all on the first page.

Gabs said this isn't new. He noticed the same thing happen about a year ago. He said, "google.co.uk is showing a load of .com.au's again." Now, for a search specific to company registrations, you would think that a searcher is typically looking for something more localized. In any event, I am not sure if this is just the "yoyoing" we have seen in the July report or something else.
