Google NZ: Google New Zealand: Webhp, Search, Homepage: English, Maori

Updated on February 4, 2015

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 ( 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'.
