Google.com redirecting to third party country site

Recommended Posts

Before today I had experienced google.com request to redirect to the site for the country of the server I was connected to. For example, Google searches on Nashira in the UK would prompt to use google.co.uk. But I had never seen Google redirect to a third country. Using Carinae [uK], I was prompted to switch to google.com.tr [Turkey!] and using Velorum [Germany], I was prompted to switch to google.it [italy]. 

 

Has anyone else encountered this issue? It's possible that google made changes to how it decides if a user may prefer a country-specific version of their site. It's a minor annoyance, but when the redirection is to a more censorship-friendly country such as Turkey it does look a bit worrisome.

I'm on Aquilae, DE, it redirects me to Italy. I love it because YouTube is doing the same and I don't suffer video blocks from GEMA. Same with Velorum, DE. Let's keep it that way.
