How to Access the International Version of Google

Mon, Mar 1, 2010 11:22PM +0800

The search engine that is. If you are observant, you’ll notice that whenever you go to www.google.com, you’ll be redirected to your local version (unless you’re in the US, I think). For example, in Singapore when you type google.com in the address bar, it turns into google.com.sg

What if you want to stay in the international page? Besides spoofing the the IP address (which is beyond most people’s realm of knowledge, and needlessly complicated), simply append “/ncr” at the end of the URL i.e. http://google.com/ncr

What does “ncr” stand for? No Country Redirect.
