How to visit Google.com instead of Google.lk

Just a quick tip for those of you who struggle to visit Google.com and get redirected to Google.lk or Google.(your country TLD).

As I’d seen some people in Sri Lanka including a few friends find it weird as they type in Google.com in their browser address bar and they land in Google.lk . This mainly happens because Google redirects you to your local search to find more relevant and closer results to your query.

If you want to override this and use Google.com for your search you have 2 options.

1. Click the button on your bottom right which says Google.com

Or

2. Simply type www.google.com/ncr which will take you directly to Google.com

Appreciate your comments on which one you’d prefer more to use.
