how do I block Google from knowing where I am?
while a search for just about anything, brings millions of results. when you decide to select anyone of them, it will take you to a preset, based on Google having found your whereabouts. for example I live in London Ontario, my ISP is in Kitchener ONT. when I browse on Google and find where I want to go, I am automatically sent to something near me as a posed to where I want to go. it is as if they know where I am but not where I want to go? I want to stop this from happening. example GNC in the USA, I try to log on and I am diverted to GNC Canada, can't stop it.

hello mgrubs, this is just how the internet works & you cannot block this information since it is necessary to establish a connection between the server (google in this case) and you. based on the ip address your provider assigns to you, your counterpart will always have a rough idea on where you are based - http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/network-location/
