I have a question about Google SERPs from different countries.

If I am in the UK and I search with Google.com and I am not logged into a Google account, where do my results come from:

a Google.com data center in the UK?
a Google.co.uk set of results?
a mix of both?

Is there any difference with the same search on Google.co.uk?

Any help gratefully received!

Google's goal is to provide you with the best possible results, that's how they sell advertisement, it's how they keep everyone happy. So if I typed in "local plumber UK" and a plumber from Australia showed up, that wouldn't be the best result would it? To put it in simple terms, if you are on google.co.uk and type in "local plumber" it's giving you results from other .co.uk sites (typically).

It's more dependent on where you set your location on the left side of the screen/UI.

Another good example to back what I said is here in the US, we don't ever get BBC articles, we always get FOX, NBC, CBS articles. Sometimes you might get a BBC.

Google knows your Geo Location by your IP address.
Then you will likely be redirected from .com to .co.uk automatically.
If not, the fact that you searched on Google .com from a UK IP address will result in you getting a UK Biased set of results.
