Not valid choices for me.
If I am searching for something UK related then I ALWAYS select the UK option
If I am searching for something international, for example to check some css syntax, then I ALWAYS use the web option

Tough question, I change between the two all the time and some times forget to check the right one and then I end up wonder where on earth they get these results from at times ;)

<admin note: this and the above messages were split from this earlier thread [webmasterworld.com]>

In the previous thread there was a lot of debate as to why statistics tend to suggest that internet users in the UK are carrying out more searches per person. I think it is a safe bet that our own searching habits have indeed got a lot to do with this.

For example do you find yourself using Google to locate a service, then realise you are searching the web, then check the "UK sites" checkbox and start your search all over again?

Give us some info on your search habits and how you use the UK/Web selection boxes.

Mack.
