I disabled personalized search (unchecked My Location in Tools) because I did not want to always see the message from Google that I mentioned in the opening post appear in the SERP. Before that it was not disabled, it was enabled.
I know this might be a bit of a stretch but do you think that by disabling personalized search it could affect the rankings for websites that you are working on from that computer? I noticed that I went down for certain keywords that I was ranking for the day after I disabled personalized search.
Would disabling personalized search sort of anger Google and could what I asked happen?
