Google (countryTLD) not showing local results unless pages from.

We not in the USA (google.com) and use our country specific Google such as google.(country extension).

I have noticed that the default google.(country extension) is now showing 80+% results of Google.com.

Only when I set to "pages from" does it show the relevant results for my country.

This has only shifted in the past few weeks and is alarming as the average user does not use the "pages from" feature.

We have noticed this across multiple industries and also noticing brand related searches favoring domains with brand name in them.

Anyone seeing this?

Not right now, but I have seen this kind of change flicker in and out over past years. Google seems to keep testing what their users really want the most. Must be a close vote, because it just doesn't settle down.
