Returning wrong country results
« on: February 07, 2015, 06:33:30 AM »
Hi,

Purchased this yesterday, but KS seemed to return wrong country KWs.

Please see screenshot here - http://screencast.com/t/cQs3gCORJh

Appreciate your input, otherwise KS seems unusable here.

Regards,
Andy

Looks like Google is localizing your results to your IP address. I suggest using a proxy in the country that you actually want results from.

I tried that search for Singapore from the UK, where I am based, not using a proxy. There were lots of keywords and they included a LOT of singapore related words, though they also included nyc, etc. The returned results included the words that were shown in the singapore google screencapture

KS is not returning the right local G suggestions.

i tried manually checking e.g catering a, b, c, d, e....

KS returns A LOT of non local KWs.

Any solutions?

I shouldn't need to meddle with proxy, i'm wanting KS to return local/Singapore results where I'm based but it wouldn't.

You need a proxy. Any tool that pulls results from Google search suggestions is going to return results localized to your IP.

Sorry, I'm confused. I'm located IN Singapore and am looking up suggests for google.com.sg, can you confirm that I need a proxy? I thought KS not returning localized results is the problem here.

If you're in Singapore and not getting Singapore results, that's different. It's definitely calling the suggestion results sourced from Google in Singapore. I'll have to look into it.

I don't know what to tell you. KS passes the country code to Google and Google decides what to return. I'm not sure why they're not  returning the localized version for you.

Could it be the OPPOSITE of what is in this post? http://jlforums.com/instant-article-wizard/not-getting-any-keyword-results/msg27707/#msg27707 ie the country is not set on the OPs computer?

Hello,

I have here the same issue  :(
I based in germany and KS returns a mix of german, netherland, italian, france KW. This was not in the beginning, so may google has changed something which confuses KS?

Any hint? It´s hard to clean the results from foreign trash.

Cheers gieri

Hi,

I am from germany and I do have the same problem. Looking for german keywords by using language selector "germany", but receiving only keywords in english... Please fix, otherwise I would ask for paying me back the purchase price. THX
