    How the heck do I stop it from bringing up american sites in search????
    it's driving me blooming MAD :cursing: :cursing:

    I am trying to find a cheap(ish) fish tank stand in the UK and it keeps giving me all these stupid american sites with $$$'s everywhere! Grrrr.

    I hate searching for things on the internet and this is just making me mad.

    Ok- think you probably get that I'm mad. :D
    Please help. There doesn't seem to be anything in advanced search to filter american sites out!

    I usually just type in what I'm looking for and add, for sale in the U.K or whatever region of the uk I want to look aton the end and it usually works, its worth a try :)

    When you are searching, put UK at the end of your search. That is what I do :)

    Type in what you want to search.

    On the next tab that opens, under the search box is "pages from the UK" Click that.
