    If you have foreign websites it can be hard to check your rankings in other TLD's. I also had this problem, but I found a solution that I haven't seen around here at BHW, that's why I though i'd share it with you guys :).

    How-to
    Simply type in your preffered Google.tld (ie. Google.de or Google.fr) and add '/ncr'. Ie. 'www.google.de/ncr'

    This way you can easily check rankings in other countries! Be sure to use Privacy modus in your browser to make sure your not logged in to Google.

    Please Thanks if this was helpful for you :)

    Actually, that does not work! It works to force your browser to use eg Google.com if you keep getting redirected to google.fr becuase you are in Paris.

    To really see local rankings you can buy country specific IP's from Fiverr and use that in your browser proxy settings to see real local results or use seo serps: http://www.seoserp.com/web_tools/google_top_1000_serps_checker.asp

    It definitely works here, try this as example:

    http://www.google.de/ncr

    I now see the German Google (in English language, but this can be changed as well in settings) and even get german Google suggest.

    If you don't have uk/de/fr etc ips the results will be screwed.

    Nope. It wont work. Adding /ncr seemly means "no redirect", but the results are displayed based on your ip.

    yes, you will get german results, BUT it is NOT accurate unless you also use German IP ADDRESS!! So if you are in UK and you try to get google.de/ncr results, it will show you the results...but based on your UK IP so it is not 100% theame as if you were actually in germany. You need to also use a German IP too. Hope you understand now!!

    ncr means "no country redirect", it supposed to get you to google .com no matter where you are
