Prevent Google to Redirect to Local Country-Specific Searching

with 2 comments


I’m currently working for a Korean Company. Each time i go to Google, i wil be redirected to Google Korea page. It’s little bit annoying not only i couldn’t read korea very well but also the search engine will prefer to show the  results from local Korean site. I’d like to go to Google.com page rather than being redirected to  country-location-specific google page.

Changing my default language to English didn’t help. Until i found this post in Google Forum discussion. The only thing you need to do is only visiting the  Google no country redirect (NCR) url (http://www.google.com/ncr). That will install a cookie that prevents country specific search results.  If we want to reset our  browser to enable country redirect feature, only thing we need to do is just delete our  google NCR cookies.

According to post i’ve mentioned before, some people couldn’t use the NCR cookie. The way that also works for them is by manually set search engine preferences with : http://www.google.com/search?q=%s url. But for me, the NCR just works fine and smoothly.

I hope it will helps you if you meet the same problem.🙂
