There is a discussion at WebmasterWorld forums about Yahoo sending visitors to country specific versions of their homepage.
So if you try and go to Yahoo.com from England or Germany you end up at the country specific version of the Yahoo homepage. Google has been doing this for a long time, interesting that it has taken this long for Yahoo to catch on and drive local traffic to their many country specific sites.
Could this help international search numbers?
