Under the /Advanced/General/ tab there's a block you can check to be warned when a site tries a redirect. A panel will rise at the top of the screen for the warning and then you can accept or ignore the redirect. This may help.

You could also go to the google site and bookmark some of the other " googles" in your bookmark file.

Some services redirect you to a page in a different geographical area based on the location of the IP you are using to connect to the internet. It may be incorrectly determining your location, or you may not wish this to occur for other reasons. The service may provide a means of setting a cookie to prevent this in the future.

I already know that why some web pages redirecting me, and i don't have any trouble with pages which redirecting me but i just wanted to learn if there is an option to block redirecting.

I saw on a forum, a guy was talking about -he disabled redirecting- but i think he using opera.

So there is no option to block redirecting, sadly.
