Google Uk Results Now Significantly Different

A little more research, and we can see that in the first 15 results, there is not a single non UK geo located page!
Their main competitor is a Canadian company, and they have gone from 1 to 16. A quick check shows that there are UK sites below them, so it looks like google is giving a lot more weight to sites that are geo hosted.Any oneelse seen this around the world?
I would love to show the example, but client confidentiality disallows it

You see, it could have been that you were doing some shady seo and never realized the gain you speak of... but instead, you were in a position (geo or not) to take those upward moves based on the algorithm change or whatever - and that your website was qualified to take that (those) spots.
You had a website capable and worthy of the promotion, whatever the reason for others dropping off.
(Yeah, it must be in the stars) LOL

I am seeing the same thing, but also on .co.uk. Have not checked any other localities. In past weeks, conducting a search on .co.uk produced very similar results as my default .com in the U.S. Today, however I am seeing many more UK websites in place of previously listed US based sites...interesting.

I last checked our SERPS last week but rechecked today and we have moved up 3 places from 10 to 7 for our main phrase......but we are not located in UK.

It seems a middle ground between 'google.com' and 'google.co.uk with pages from the UK results set'.
Although I benefit I have always found it odd that google.co.uk without the UK filter should be different. If the search is set to 'the web' surely logic says it should be showing similar results to 'google.com'?
I just wonder though how many people really use google.co.uk - I personally don't know anyone.
It is the same for msn.com and uk.msn.com - although there I do think most people using msn in the UK use uk.msn.com - just because of the way it is set up.

I differ someway on Google.com and Google.co.in results
They are nearly similar for india specific querries and most (atleast first 2 pages) show all .com's
I hope its not

A side effect is that advertisers have to up spend on adwords outside of their local market - which may be the other motive.
