Anyone know a way to search Google as if you were in a particular city? Mainly I want to see what adwords are geotargeted there, but I would also like to see the natural search results.

Any ideas?

    If I understand correctly, this is what I do when I'm in a particular area and I need to find something. I'll type in either of the following:

    cortez colorado movies
    cortez movies
    81321 movies

    The zip code works wonders for a bunch of stuff for me.
    Now if I don't understand what your talking about, I apologize for wasting your time. lol

      Actually, I'm looking for a way to see what adwords appear when you're in a city.

      Adwords allows you to only show ads to a particular city or a custom area you define. They use IP addresses to serve the ads to the right people.

      Is there any way to figure out what adwords someone sees when they're searching from a city other than my own?

        Yes. Use the Google's Ad Preview Tool:

          Thanks cmartin, that's what I was looking for.

          If you went the proxy server route, is it possible to find a free proxy server?

    If you know someone there, it helps or use a proxy server in that city. Google to find one.

    (or buy PPC Web Spy)
