HOW TO: Stop Google.com from redirecting you to another country/language

Unfortunately Google uses their own database for where IPs are located in the world and quite often their database is incorrect so it will redirect US IP addresses to other country/language homepages instead. You're welcome to contact Google to see if they'll fix it, but we've never had any success with that so instead we recommend using this link so you're not redirected: http://www.google.com/ncr

Additionally, if you want to confirm your IP has the correct geolocation information, you can use this link to look it up on one of the most widely used databased in the world: https://www.maxmind.com/en/geoip-demo
If you find an error with Maxmind's database, please open up a ticket with us and we'll submit a correction with them. Corrections can take up to a month to be added to their databases so you'll need to be patient.
