How can I match my location to the city where I'm targeting my searches
How can I match my location to the city where I'm targeting my searches.
- How can I change the location of my browser to search for local results in other cities? For example: I'm searching from Seattle looking to view the results for local shops and services in Chicago.
Here are some options.
- For a rough search, use your browser to append &near=cityname to your query. For example, https://www.google.com/search?q=pizza&near=chicago
- You can be more precise using Chrome browser dev tools, which enable you to specify your latitude and longitude for a precise search, as if you're using your phone's GPS. See: https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/device-mode/geolocation
- There's also Bright Local's local search results checker tool.
