What has happened to Google that when searching for things that need to be in GBP they are VERY often, too often in USD. Why in the hell is that of any use to UK buyers?

It is happening more and more and some items like furniture would cost a bomb to ship over. And no, I have not found any offers to be dual offers GBP/USD. Even Amazon are doing it.! Infuriating I tell you :ugh:

Let's see, here's a new furniture set, priced in Sterling, which you can sit at to Google away at all the things that are priced in, yes, Pounds Sterling.

It's all gone downhill since they started taking the pink off the map.:hmm:

Would putting the word "dollars" or the $ symbol in the "But don't show pages that have any of these unwanted words" box, cure that?

Are you using Google UK? i.e. link to Google uk (http://www.google.co.uk/) ?

If you are after the initial search you have (in the left hand column) a choice for "Pages from the UK". It isn't perfect, but it does narrow your sixty-two billion choices to a couple of gadzillion (tm).
