Why do I need to set a Search Location?

Mathew Coghlan -


Google displays results based on your search location. So people from Los Angeles get different results from people in Chicago. What if your customer is from a different city or even country and you want to see exactly what he/she sees? That is what Search Location does – it emulates the location so that you would get most suitable results for that location.
