What's the difference between Google Germany and Google Germany (Germany) search engines?

Major search engines have regional counterparts. Generally, there are three options:

  • regular web search
  • search only in pages written in that engine's local language
  • search only in pages physically located in the engine's covered area (country)

For each regional search engine with the options above, three entries will appear in the list, so you can have the ability to query the same search engine with different search. For example:

  • Google Germany. This makes a regular web search in Google Germany (google.de)
  • Google Germany (German). This searches only in pages written in German
  • Google Germany (Germany). This searches only in pages located in Germany
