Google .com/ UK canonicalization problems

In SEO, The Digital Marketing Blog by JohnLeave a Comment

Noticed this curious little glitch with Google’s support pages.

A web search on Google UK returns 2 identical Google listings on and domains which isn’t particularly useful:


Search in the UK only and both pages disappear which is even stranger (actually the is listed on the 3rd page somewhere but still)


What made this (vaguely) interesting to me was that this is on a search term which is almost certainly ‘hand sorted’ in one way or another so:

a) why not sort out the duplicate pages and

b) is the UK index not hand sorted in the same way?
