Force Google Chrome to Use Google.com Instead of Specific Version

Use Google.com In Google Chrome Instead Of Country Specified Version

As a marketer, I choose the use of Google.com as my primary search engine for lots reasons.  occasionally I need US-based searches however usually it is due to frequently Google exams or releases functions on .com first.  And if I ever want to do local-based searches, I can easily head to my country-specific Google version alternatively.

however in Chrome, even though the default search engine is ready at Google.com, it’s going to still robotically route the searcher to the Google version for the country they’re in, requiring customers to go lower back to Google.com and click on the “visit Google.com” link that appears within the homepage footer.

there may be a way to set Google.com because of the default in Chrome, for entrepreneurs wishing to hold an eye fixed on the Google.com search results rather than their own country version.

Follow these steps to make google.com your default search engine:

First, you need to open Chrome, and then go to settings.

And now click on “Manage Search Engines”, even though it presently suggests Google as the default. (Just ignore it)

Force-Google-Chrome-to-Use-Google.com

Now Scroll down until you see the “Add” button and then just click on the “Add Button”

For Search engine Name type “Google NCR” (You can type your own name if you want, I am just typing it so that I could remember this) and for keyword type “Google NCR_” (without quotes).  _ this could serve to remind you that that is the Google search with “No Country Redirect” enabled

And then simply add this URL to the URL field:

“https://www.google.com/search?q=%s&pws=0&gl=us&gws_rd=cr” (without quotes)

Do notice that your local search results can be skewed through the use of Google.com even though the AdWords advertisements displayed will nevertheless be geotargeted to your place, that is running as intended.  in case you want to see AdWords advertisements for any other country, you will need to use a proxy or VPN to do so.
