Lol, .. what's your process?

Do you use the standard "nz" tacked on the end or do you actually click the new "Pages from New Zealand" in the left-nav?

1st option: don't bother with doing anything different, it is the easiest way.... yes even when I want NZ sites
2nd: add "nz" to the search string IF I know beforehand I want a nz site AND I think they're unlikely to be on the first page of results
3rd: clicking on "pages in nz"

Cool, thanks for the feedback.

I'm very similar to your selection i.e. depending on what it is I'm looking for.

We threw the question around our office for a bit and didn't come up with a conclusive answer to what the norm is.

Anyone else changed their habits since Google Layout changed?

as you can see I don't use the "in nz" feature much now and didn't then (well, I did.... but almost never as the first option)

what would be more interesting to hear from is people who normally always did searches in nz as their FIRST one, if such a searching creature exists?

I would have thought that the creature is now completely extinct with the default requirement to do a regular search before you can select Pages from New Zealand?

The only way you could search Pages from New Zealand first would be to pre-enter the country code into the URL?

Unless I'm missing the question :)
