Google UK : www google co uk : Search, Webhp and UK Google Homepage Functions (in English)

Google UK (www google co uk) is the Google search page as produced for the United Kingdom. Google UK homepage is a clone of the Classic Google homepage with localized UK functionality. From Google United Kingdom (www google uk) you can undertake searches that have a UK bias, with Google UK in English.

As with all other Google search pages, Google UK search can be viewed in languages other than English. To achieve this you can utilise the Google co uk webhp function. Another trick is to increase the UK bias to show only UK sites (more on these later).

To all intents and purposes Google UK looks like the Google classic homepage except that it is badged as UK with the letters 'UK' under the 'l' of Google and the redirection function set to 'Go to Google.com'.

Occasionally the Google UK homepage looks a little different and has celebration-specific graphics which reflect special days in the UK calendar, just like all other local and international versions of Google. Otherwise, in the English version of Google UK, you will see very little difference from any other local country version of Google search homepage.

Google UK (www google co uk) Homepage - How Do I Get To UK Google?

Google UK (www google co uk) can be accessed in several different ways that bypass the automatic redirection of Google localised search or Google (www google com) homepage search:

  1. If you usually browse in English from Google.com, and you have not been classified as from a local search region, then just type 'www.google.co.uk' into your browser search window. This will take you to Google UK, English version, direct.

  2. If you have been classified by Google as UK local then, on any version of Google homepage that you happen to be on, all you need to do is click the 'Go to Google UK' or 'Go to Google UK in English' link at the lower right of the Google search homepage screen.

  3. You can access GoogleTheGlobe and click on the UK flag.

  4. You can obtain Google UK search results by adding or changing the “gl” parameter of the Google search URL, for example http://google.com/search?q=google&gl=uk.

A full explanation of how to access the Classic Google Home that has no country redirection or geotargeting can be found in Search Google:Universal Search Google:Global Search Google: International Search Google:Worldwide Search Google by Humagaia, which has information about searching without geotargeting.

A full explanation of the full list of Google functions available through the Classic Google homepage is available at Google Classic Homepage by Humagaia.

Google UK (www google co uk) Homepage – Can I View Only Pages from the UK?

Yes, you can view just pages from the UK but only in English. To do this you use the Google UK webhp function as follows:

http://www.google.co.uk/webhp?cr=countryUK

If this does not work then an alternative is:

http://www.google.co.uk/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-UK:official

You do not need to run the Firefox browser to use this. Once on the Firefox page just make sure the Search 'pages from the UK' button is set, as opposed to the Search 'the web' button.
