Autocompleting Australia « Rob Trotter
I decided to put togethor the Australian edition. Also with comparisons from searching on google.com to google.com.au
Google does alter search results based on both location and past searches. To what extent are the search results a reflection of the tastes of both the particular and general of the ip address used for those searches?
The results are definitely regionally specific. For example, here in Washington State, typing in Washington gives Washington State as the top autocomplete with Washington State Ferries after that. No Post anywhere. For Oregon, I get the Oregon Ducks, not the trail. For Idaho, I get Idaho Fish and Game.
I would assume that enough Washingtonians are Ducks and go fishing or hunting in Idaho to sway the results over the map above.
They must be in the Midwest. I get the same answers.
Actually, it was probably done in New York City – “Nevada Smith’s” is a bar in Manhattan that people in Nevada presumably don’t search for very often on Google.
