Cutts on the UK SERPS issue: talking around the bush
There has been a lot of talk online about the UK SERPS. In the last couple of months many results in Google.co.uk were 'polluted' by results from the US, Australia or New Zealand.
Off course Matt is right about that. If .com results are better than UK results, they should pop up. There are however results which clearly don't belong there. A Google Map result of US-based companies when searching in the UK simply is not a good result.The video Cutts made made a lot of UK searchers react. They felt Cutts was avoiding the real answer. This then resulted in another blogpost by Cutts in which he countered the questions. He stated that he has been following some of the examples people have pointed out and felt some were actually the result of the changes he mentioned in the video. Other results however really didn't belong there.
