google search results for multiple locations?
Remote search results

 4:32 pm on Oct 31, 2007 (gmt 0)

Does anyone know how to get Google results as if you are in another city? For example; I am in Austin, but I need to see the paid results my client in Seattle sees. Or, I need developers in Italy to see US search results for NY or LA.

Google gives them results for their location, not my customer's location.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, and thanks for your question.

I know how to view from a different country, but not by town/state.

Anyone with an idea?

Here's a thread I came across in this forum. Some suggestions were made, but the discussion wasn't followed up....

Seeing local ads in another city

I'd be interested in seeing more info posted on this if anyone has it.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld Lewis_t,

The AdWords preview tool [adwords.google.com] allows you to do this. Sorry it took so long for a response.

How about local organic serps on Google, which is my particular interest?

When I want to check location specific results I go through a high-anonynimity proxy that is in the targeted area. It's a little dangerous which is why I do it from a machine that's isolated from my network and on a rolling external IP. This makes you appear as a searcher from within whatever area you want and the rolling IP keeps a hacker from hitting my IP because it changes every couple of hours.
