Adding Google Search to Internet Explorer 9 and above - Australian Users

This week, I came across an issue where we spent half an hour to add Google search into Internet Explorer as default search engine. It supposed to be very easy but Google search was not listed in IE add-ons anywhere.

If you are using Internet Explorer 9 or above then please follow these steps:

Go to Tools > Manage Add-ons > Search Providers > Find more search providers

Now, you can see that there is no "Google search" listed under search add-ons

So, the trick is to edit the URL and go to US add-ons website.

Please note that when you go to US website then it defaults to "Pinned Sites" webpage. So please change it to "Add-ons" again. Now, when you click on "search" section then you can see that "Google search" is visible.
Click on "Google search" > Add to Internet Explorer > Tick the box to make it default > Add

Once you are done then please close everything and restart Internet Explorer. You will have Google as default search engine.
