Yeah, we lot in the UK are less fussy with the quality of SERPs we get ;)
Seriously, though, I wonder how different these figures would have been if Google didn't force me to the .co.uk when I wanted to do a search on the .com.

Use www.google.com/ncr as the ncr stands for no country redirect and will leave you at the .com!
Read that off a DaveN post some place :)

Or just click "Go to Google.com"

Generally speaking and for the broader audience, it takes Europe a couple of years in some cases to implement mainstream US tendencies. It was so with eBay, Google and now blogging. On the other hand the US is slower than Europe when it comes to cellphone market tendencies.

I appreciate the suggestions but the wider Googling community may not have access to those useful tips.

Does not work in Firefox's multi-search bar that I use: go to Google.com is not persistent, and redirect is extremely annoying and even on fact connection I feel delay that is totally unnecessary: if they want to use UK's datacenter then just return UK's IP on attempt to resolve google.com

As if those numbers from hitbox/websidestory have any hope of accuracy.
None of the numbers they come out with ever seem to compare to what I have seen for any sites.

Surely I'm not the only one in the UK whose Opera, Firefox and MSIE toolbars all default to Google.com?

I'm sure that at some point someone will get this thread back on topic. :)

I've found that Google.co.uk throws up some very good results and at least we get the option to use either .com or .co.uk unlike MSN which seems to be mule by any other description.
MSN.co.uk is not too bad however MSN.com is a joke in my sector.

I am not surprised by this news!
