Google NZ: www.google.co.nz: Google New Zealand: Webhp, Search, Homepage: English, Maori

Google NZ (www google co nz) is the Google search page as produced for New Zealand. Google New Zealand homepage is a clone of the Classic Google homepage with localized New Zealand functionality. From Google New Zealand (www.google.co.nz) you can undertake searches that have a New Zealand bias, with NZ Google in English or NZ Google in Maori.

As with all other Google search pages, Google NZ search can be viewed in languages other than English. To achieve this you can utilise the Google co nz webhp function. Another trick is to increase the New Zealand bias to show only New Zealand sites.

To all intents and purposes NZ Google looks like the Google classic homepage except that it is badged as New Zealand with the words 'New Zealand' under the 'le' of Google and the redirection function set to 'Go to Google.com'.

Google NZ (www google co nz) Homepage - How Do I Get To NZ Google?

Google NZ (www.google.co.nz) 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.nz' into your browser search window. This will take you to Google New Zealand direct.

  2. If you have been classified by Google as New Zealand 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 New Zealand' link at the lower right of the Google search homepage screen.

  3. You can access GoogleTheGlobe and click on the New Zealand flag.

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

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.

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 NZ (www.google.co.nz) Homepage – Can I View New Zealand Google In Another Language?

To access Google New Zealand in English:

http://www.google.co.nz/webhp?hl=en

which becomes:

http://www.google.co.nz/webhp?hl=mi

for New Zealand Google in Māori.

Google NZ (www google co nz) Homepage – Can I View Only Pages from New Zealand?

You can view just websites from New Zealand but only in English. To do this you use the Google NZ webhp function as follows:

http://www.google.co.nz/webhp?cr=countryNZ

If this does not work then an alternative is:

http://www.google.co.nz/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-NZ: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 New Zealand' button is set, as opposed to the Search 'the web' button.
