Google.co.nz is my home page.

I use to be able to limit searches to pages from NZ but now I can't.

The options down the left hand side have "gone" and I can't find how to get them back.

Any idears Team ?

Phil.

Sure, just type in Site:nz into the search box after you type your query.

Example - 'nz herald Site:nz'

Thanks Nick G that works just fine.

Notechety, Your reference didn't seem to work for me at all.
Thanks for your help though.

The site command (e.g. site:nz, site:.com, etc), a advanced Google Operator (http://www.googleguide.com/advanced_operators.html) usually restricts searches to site's with your query (e.g. NZ) in the url/domain, and is reasonbly useful and a common simple operator. However there are also the little known Google advanced and more targeted url query string parameters, (http://www.blueglass.com/blog/google-search-url-parameters-query-string-anatomy/) which Google themselves don't seem to mention/document much. This includes parameters for country codes (https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/appendix/countrycodes) (part of Google's Adwords API)- which forces Google to search/display for websites of the country's origin.

Appending &cr=countryNZ at the end of your Google's search query URL will show sites originating from NZ. Also displays additional search links - including pages from NZ - in Chrome and Firefox.
