How can I have australian websites open by default

Posted

Every time i so a search i have to specify Australia in the title to avoid getting a string of USA or other international websites first. It is very annoying. I search world wide on occasions and buy some stuff from USA, but doing shopping or looking for local info mostly, i would like to set my country of preference to appear first. Can this be done? Thanks
