i am in a quandary on this. We can clearly see google is trying more and more to narrow results by location. Now on the one hand if i search from say the UK for a product i like to get UK sites to deal with. On the other hand one of the big pluses of the internet was that instead of walking your local high street you could shop the world. Google is now narrowing the field once again geographically speaking and we could end up shopping on a virtual local high street taking us back to square one. Now as i see it they can give us the best of both worlds by making those check boxes more accurate, UK only sites, english focussed sites from around the world and another for true local results.
