UK biased search engine?

Hi....I have BT yahoo as my home page and have chosen Google as my search provider. Unfortunately when I try to make a search I get just one or two UK results and the rest seem to be USA. Is there a way of converting Google search to get the choice of a UK search or not please? If not, can anybody recommend a search provider that is more UK biased?
thanks

Have you tried selecting the box which says "pages from the UK" ?? click here

Are you using Google.Com or Google.co.uk.
Com is the American Version.

You can also try Yahoo.co.uk (UK) or Yahoo.com (American)

how to do it via BT yahoo, but I use google.co.uk rather than google.com

This then offers a button choice of "all the web" or "UK pages only" for the results.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

thanks to all....I must have had Google.com. I have now added google.co.uk as a tab on my bt yahoo home page and it works fine!
