    A couple things for you to try.

    Code:
    http://www.google.com/ncr
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/search?q=YOURSEARCHHERE
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/intl/en/
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=en
    You can also try going into your iGoogle and changing your location to USA.

    Hopefully one of them works for you.

    I remember this "Go to google.com" thing being there for months. It only appears if you actually go to Google by typing the URL in the address bar. If you just press "Enter" in the search bar for Firefox, for example, it won't show the "Go to google.com" link at the bottom.

    Anyone else notice that traffic to UK sites that was sent via google.com has stopped totally now, and only comes via google.co.uk
    Thsi means that visitors have plummetted,, any ideas on how to solve this?
