SEO Location Question
« on: 10-26-2011, 11:01:54 »
Hi, I'm running into a location issue that I don't understand.   I have sites hosted in Canada and targeting a small niche in Canada, US and Mexico.

 When I search for my keywords I'm showing excellent ranking in google.ca, google.com, .com.mx, .com.br, etc.   But when I use a proxy server to check my positioning is the same for google.ca, google.com.mx, com.uk, .com.br but drop out of the picture in Google.com.

any ideas why I drop out in google.com when using a proxy server? 

thanks
gmlacruz

For checking keywords in UK, you need to visit [.co.uk] not [.com.uk]

Coming to your question, suppose you handle SEO for a US website from UK, then the results which you get from google.co.uk may differ from your client results. This is because Google personalises the SERPs by considering your IP address. In order to avoid this problem, we use proxy servers.

But you case is quite rare because according to me if you use a US proxy server, then your keyword rankings should not differ. I guess you need to switch to a different US proxy to solve this problem.

hello!
To achieve its purpose in my opinion you should drive traffic from countries your client .
You can develop traffic from social networking sites, backlinks from sites that country and adjust target users in webmaster tool.

This certainly happens many times and there is nothing to worry. As you are using proxy so you cannot rely on software thing. If possible use some different proxy location or system. And searching many things from a proxy sometimes give fluctuating results.

It is all about keyword competition based on location. The location where you are getting results,there might be less competition for the keywords, but if you are targetting your keywords for Google.com, usually,there will be huge competition.

Google is "smart" these days. It remembers sites you frequently visit and searches you usually do. Especially if you're logged into your googe account. Then it shows those sites higher then if you go anonymous (and with clear cache). And shows corresponding paid adds :) s well.
