It's Google's attempt at providing results specific to your geo-location. It definitely needs some work, and I wish someone at G would take a look at it, as I've been reporting it to them for ages.

Google seems to hammer a lot of US companies trying to do business in the United States.
|I have a few other sites that I have within the top 5 results for the same keyword. |
How many of your sites do you want in the top 5 results? Many would be content with one.

Thanks for your replies.
I thought it could be the geo-location however the results do not match up with where the server is located or where I'm located (Canada).
I specialize in optimizing sites within a certain industry and I have a couple sites plus a few clients sites within the first page of results.
How long could results stay like this? Google Webmaster Tools also states rankings within the top 10 for the keywords however I seem to be the only one actually seeing them when searching. My client plus others we have got to test ranking checks, did not see the site at all within the first 300 results.

|I am baffled by this problem. I have a US based website that is trying to target a specific keyword with around 20mil results. I have a few other sites that I have within the top 5 results for the same keyword. |
A few other sites? That would be three (03) correct? So, you have three sites there already for the same keyword and are wondering why the fourth is challenging? I think I'd be happy with the three. No wait, I'd be real concerned for at least two of those maybe in the very near future. ;)
Or, maybe you've just figured out a way to bring back the 90s again and having those first few spots is cake walk? Help me to understand please. :)

Okay, I'm starting to understand just a little more. How many sites total do you have for those keyword phrases in the top 10-20? :)

There is defiantely a disturbance in the Force.
Here in the us a few days ago I was searching on my newly aquired laptop with no cookies or history and it Google kept coming up with UK results.

Yesterday I searched for some online tools for checking rankings. They came up with results all across the board (between #6 to #336). Judging from their stat tracking however, they are getting a lot of visitors with this keyword via google. If they were on the 33rd page, they would be getting no traffic.
It is obvious that some people are seeing them on the first or second page. I guess I need to just keep optimizing it and building links to bring it to the first page for all users.
