I am based in the UK. When I do a search on Google.com, I would like to see the USA Adwords ads only.

How can I do this?

I saw a post once saying about adding &al=usa or something but I can't find it!

Does that mean I have to manually type that in each time I want to do a search on Google? Or is there a way to have a bookmark that when I do a search it will always show the USA Adwords?

I tried adding "&gl=us" to google.com and it didn't work!

Jon, you need to perform the search, then add &gl=us to the end of the query and resubmit. It's a two step process. Or just go through a US proxy as suggested.

Here is how I get around this:

Go to proxy4free.com and pick up the "transparent" type IP for which ever country I want to see the ads.

Configure the same in my IE.

I think this is the most simple and flexible.
