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

 10:23 am on Jan 16, 2007 (gmt 0)


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?

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?

I do when I'm looking to purchase.

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:
