    Here!
    Anyone from UK here?

    Can you access google.COM or are you going to be redirected to google.CO.UK?

    I tried using a UK proxy accessing google.com but its redirecting me to google.co.uk

    Basically I just want to check my sites SERP ranking from UK but I want to search if my site is visible on google.com using UK ip.

    Thanks,

    Just above where it says 2010 - Privacy, on google.co.uk, it says:

    Go to Google.com

    Click that, and *BAM*, you're at google.com!

    When you are using a UK-proxy it automatically redirects you to google.co.uk!

    Have a try with a US-proxy. Google always redirects you to the contry-site you are accessing from.

    You can access both.

    Default is the uk search but most people I know have it set to global.

    I'm in the UK, and it defaults to google.co.uk

    But when I click on Go to google.com, it takes me to it.
