Google.ch

Is anyone else finding that Google Searches seem to pick google.ch rather than google.co.uk or google.com?
I can fix it by setting my cookies once I've gone to google.co.uk but its a bit annoying,
Edited to add:  This is happening across multiple browsers and across operating systems so its something generic.

Re: Google.ch

Sounds like Google is picking up your IP address as one belonging to a different country - happens quite a lot.

Re: Google.ch

But is everyone else noticing it?
And why should google suddenly decide my IP, which either shows up as London or Sheffield (depending on which resource you use), is in Switzerland?

Re: Google.ch

I've not noticed it at all. Are you on a Static IP or dynamic IP ?
It could be that PN have recently bought in a range of IP addresses which were previously assigned to a different country.

Not getting it on 212.159.71.x, so yeah probably your IP address is being seen as from a different country
