In the past I was able to type google.com to go to google.com instead of google.co.nz. Now when I type google.com I get redirected to google.co.nz. Problem is my search results are all related to nz and I don't want them to be. Case in point a search for 'working holiday' returns information for how to get an NZ working visa etc.

I think that

 

https://www.google.com/ncr (No Country Redirect)

 

still works

Interesting indeed. Previously it used to be a normal blue hyperlink at the bottom middle of the screen. Using Edge & Opera, the 'Use Google.com' is available at the bottom right.

 

 

 

However, using Google Chrome, there is no link to google.com. Visiting google.com/ncr does however give you a link back to google.co.nz.
