How many people click on "Pages from UK, AU" etc?

Hi,

I'm trying to estimate how many people use the "pages from" function when searching in Google. My own estimation is that in the UK around 1/3 of people use this and that it's popularity is growing. Does anyone have any information to support this or any opinions on my estimate?

Cheers

Munst

I think someone would use this only if they are looking for some local product or service .. even for that I think local searches are much better options.

I use it sometimes, if im looking for a website that should be located in the UK doesnt always work but its close enough.

Ive watched browing and searching habits and found a lot of people use that button!

I haven't kept stats but usage does seem high. I always use it if I am intending a purchase or looking for something at a location.

Did you check to see if it is the default setting?

My stats show that about 50% of people search using the country restriction.

I run an e-commerce site in Australia.

This post also confirms what I am seeing:
