Regional Tags in SERPs Very Useful in the UK

A lot of bloggers and tweeter have been complaining recently about the insurgence of US websites in UK search engine results pages. This new feature should assuage those complainers.

It should also help consumers as most shoppers don't want to buy from US websites (and pay higher shipping / import duty charges), and the indication of a UK versus non-UK location of a .com or .net site will prevent users from wasting time clicking on geographically irrelevant results.
