Location in Google Search Gets New Layout

Google does a great job in determining the location of a device and even provides relevant results based on the location. Location used to appear beneath the Google Search bar and location-based results appeared on top of the search engine results page.

Today, Google has changed the layout of the location selector a bit, making it easier to access and navigate. The location setting has been moved to the recently modified left-panel of the results page which makes it clearly visible. When location-based results are delivered, a location setting panel would automatically appear in the side panel, allowing users to modify the location suited to their needs.

You can also use the dropdown menu to customize your settings and once done, you could simply click on the “Set” button to refresh the results. The feature does not change how Google uses location information to improve search and the new interface will be available starting today in over 40 countries.
