Hi,

Recently I have been greatly annoyed that Google is returning many UK & AU sites.
I just want USA sites.
For example I google "house scaffold cost" and the first 10 sites are in the UK.
Following bad advice I looked up my IP address and it says I am in Pensacola FL,
I am actually in the midwest using Mediacom.
Is Google falling apart?
or is there something I can do to just get USA sites?

Thanks

Thanks for trying that query,  that is useful info.
Now how do we get Google to sort results by balancing relevance and distance. ;)

I am leaving the question up for a couple days to see if soemone else has an idea other than -.uk -.au.
