I have noticed for a couple of days now that most of the time Google Australia is simply showing Google.com results even when you selected "sites from Australia".

Has anyone else seen this?

Looks like it is an issue with IE 7 beta, works fine on IE6.

Hmmm, yeah, there does seem to be something amiss. Someone tripped over a power cord perhaps?

I'm seeing the usual good Australian results on a "web search"

I'm also seeing Australian results on an AU search but I'm not where I'm supposed to be, I'm missing and it's jumbled quite a bit, not good at all.

something is going on again white google.com.au.

the "pages from australia" option makes do difference to the results.

for example, searching for "pools" brings up only pages from australia, whilst "linux" brings up pages from the entire www.

In the past few days, I searched google.com.au from my country (Brazil) and was presented with the new Google layout: a left column with links to Web, Images, etc; wide right column (taking all the remaining of page) with the organic links, and the Adwords links below the organic links.

This new layout has been mentioned in other threads, but I think that the Adwords were to the right of the organic links.

Google.com.au is back to usual; however, right now google.co.nz is showing the new layout 100% of times to me.
