If you website is in the one that is listed in your profile, AOL is censoring all foreign TLD sites from its SERPs. While the AOL results say "powered by Google", they are not the same as Google's

I do not think so. It was at the beginning.
Try this search:
You can see .it TLD
Netscape is filtering foreign TLD:

You're right. AOL has changed. The question is what is it that makes his results on this search phrase so different on Google and AOL. ArturX, please sticky mail me that search phrase.

it is not the .cz web site listed in my profile, but the .com
for "Small Business Opportunities" you get my client's web site Today's Franchise as #8 in Google, but nowhere in AOL ...

thanks, angiolo, did not realise Netscape had unanounced force-fed localised results with the Google logo attached.
besides your intial Netscape version searching for hotel Rome:
but also different; from the Netscape Italian version:
Search again on this page for 'hotel rome' using Google (on the left nav-bar):
all three different as far as I can see, whatever flavour you want Netscape's Google to be...;)

What I don't understand is why now AOL isn't censoring search results based on foreign TLDs, but *Netscape* is? With AOL it at least made some sense in that the company is called *America* Online. However, Netscape is best known as a company with a web browser, and web browsers are by their nature international. Weird.
