How to Check Your US Google Search Rankings Without Using Proxy

Most of the time the SERP for United States and your own local country is different. If you are living in the US, of course this will not be an issue for you. However, for marketers who are targeting towards the US demographics, you need to know your search rankings based on Google US.

Normally I used a proxy to find out my US rankings and it can be troublesome sometimes.  But now I don’t do that because I have found an easier way to do it. Let me show you this simple method.

Let’s say you are searching for car insurance in Google. You will get a long URL like this:

The whole URL is this:

http://www.google.com.sg/#hl=en&q=car+insurance&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=car+insurance&gs_rfai=&fp=990ecd0f5fe550b8

You just need to insert “&gl=us” (without the quotes) at the end of the URL, hit the return key and you will get your US rankings instantly. Here’s what I mean:

http://www.google.com.sg/#hl=en&q=car+insurance&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=car+insurance&gs_rfai=&fp=990ecd0f5fe550b8&gl=us

Using this method, you don’t have to go through a proxy and it’s faster as well! Try it next time.
