It's been like that for ages to for me, I always change my location to UK
Now that you mention it, they did use to say something about Location in the sidebar. But it changes so often I never paid attention. Today, f'rinstance, they think I am in Danville. I don't even know where that is, beyond "somewhere in the northern half of the state".
Your location has to be in the same country as the google you're using.* I'm not taking their unsupported word; I tried it. But google dot com says "location" while others say "search near..." (even if, ahem, the local language demands "...near search").
* If I could think of a country that doesn't have a google, I would experiment further. Google dot Liechtenstein maybe? Google dot North Korea?
