Hi @mandeepb,Hey @whitespark
Thanks a lot for the link, I just enjoyed watching it and cleared my doubts. Just one more question, where
could I get UULE for Melbourne, Australia location?
I did check it in another browser where I had never checked rankings, it is now accurate as Bright Local shows. Found the keywords on #7.
Confirmed from one of my colleagues who lives in another part of the city, she confirmed that it is located at #8.
There are several ways to change/mask your location. Here are some that I know:
1. UULE - Darren pretty much explained this. Found this site to get UULE: UULE Generator for Google
Here's Melbourne's - w+CAIQICIUbWVsYm91cm5lLCBhdXN0cmFsaWE
This sets your location to the city/town.
2. Trick Google... - Trick Google in to thinking you are searching from any location
Here's an easier version of UULE
If you are like me who wants to target blocks rather than a big city, I would explore the next options below.
3. Chrome Dev - How to Manually Set Your Location in Google Chrome
This can point your location to a specific Latitude and Longitude which I personally prefer. But this is very time-consuming especially if you want to track more than 1 location.
At the same time - you need to probably make a list of GPS coordinates for each location you want to track.
4. GS Location - GS Location Changer for Chrome & Firefox
My personal favourite however is...
5. Manual Geolocation Chrome Extension - Manual Geolocation
You need a Google Map API key to do this. And took me a lot of trial and error to set it up. Most technical of the bunch.
BUT once it is set up - it is a real time saver. You can change your location within 5 seconds. I set the location by searching it in the mini-map, double-clicking to drop the pin and set the accuracy (which I only set once for the entirety I used it). Open incognito mode, and search for a local search keyword. Rinse and Repeat.
Definitely up to your goal, time, and how patient you are at setting them up initially or for each use.
@whitespark @raellovepieHi @mandeepb,
You could use this tool to generate a UULE for Melbourne, Australia:
The UULE region parameter (&uule=) of the Google search engine allows you to see the actual search results by region, which corresponds to geolocation when you are directly located in an arbitrary region (in other words, it is possible to get search results for your region in your browser...site-analyzer.pro
But, even with the UULE, I caution you to not expect to see the exact same results as what your ranking reports show. As I mentioned in the video, other factors can come into play like:
You'll probably get to a closer approximation of what the tool reports, though.
- Time (rankings are changing all the time)
- IP Address
- Browser signature
Hope this helps.
Hi jmshapHello all. I need to provide a quick update on my experience with BrightLocal. I'm done. Once a month since this original post I have had some type of issue. This weekends was the last straw. A customer that I help with their GMB management got a bad review. They are 100% set up properly in Bright Local for reputation management. I did not get a notification. I just so happen to see the review and let the customer know right away. I have had ranking issues. I have had errors in reports. I have not seen a review notification in weeks, now that I think about it. Problem after problem. Sure, customer service tries their best when I report an issue but I don't have the time to constantly wait around for them to fix issues when I a being charged for software that is supposed to work. I'm moving on. I hope everyone else has a better experience with them than I have. Good luck.
