Google Search Suggestion Becomes Local By City [groovyNews]

imageRoughly this same time last year Google launched country specific suggestions using IP-based geolocation.  This year they’ve narrowed it down even further and will suggest terms appropriate for the major city closest to your determined location.  Here’s a sample of some of the updates.



Metro Area City Relative Suggestions

Depending on where you are, you’ll probably be searching for different things.  For example if you are in Washington DC, a search for “Capitals” isn’t likely looking for a list of state or country cities, but rather you want to know about the DC NHL (hockey) team.

Corrected Name Spelling

When you are looking up the name of your favorite doctor, lawyer, writer, etc.. Google will now off you a corrected spelling for the name.  I can’t tell you how much wasted time I’ve spent looking for my favorite Japanese chiropractor but was unable to find him on Google because I couldn’t spell the name!

Google added a total of 31 more languages across 180 lands, but they didn’t include a list anywhere of what languages or lands those were so sorry but that is all we know!
