Regional Search Redirection?

  • I recently went to Spain (from US)and used Opera Coast to search. The tool switched to Google.es for its results. Now that I'm back in the US, it is still defaulting to Google.es! I cleared data using the Settings switch but same problem. I've changed search engines to bing and yahoo and back to Google, same problem. I've also just gone to Google.com hoping it would drop a cookie or something but no dice

    How can I change the "Google search" built into the coast search back to Google.com?

    Thanks, Michael

  • Hey Michael,

    could you verify if this happens to you in Safari? If it does, you're probably experiencing a bad IP-location mapping and you should use the form to report IP problem: https://support.google.com/websearch/contact/ip

    If it works correctly in Safari, please check how Yahoo detects your location. Maybe you just forgot to change your device's region back to US?

    Please also Google something random and post an URL to that search result. Maybe we'll be able to find out more based on this.


  • I have a similar issue. I have not been to Vietnam, but my Opera Coast uses Google.com.vn. I must have set something when searching for sites in Vietnamese. All other search engines work fine. How do I reset Google to search Google.com again?
