Hi

I was wondering, does Google show different results based on IP address within the same country?

Eg, if someone in Birmingham (UK) see the same result as someone in London (UK) if they searched for the same query at the same time?

Thanks

Simple answer!
Does that mean my positions could be different even within the same country?

Long answer.

I can tell when a major network like BT is being served by a data center where my site is #1 for important terms, Conversions go up and confirmation emails come through in floods.

Most of the time most people in the UK get the same results but there are times when different networks get different results. Or at least this was true when we all used to discuss what was on the various data centers.

Cheers

Sid
