Do Search engines discriminate SERP based on location in conjunction with the site operator ?
Do you mean site operator is hosting provider?
Would the SERP be different if we both searched "site:exmaple.com keyword" based current location ?
It may be, it may not. The number of people that use the site operator to search on google is so tiny, plus the results being from only one site makes variations and positions in this case irrelevant.
Yes, they are location based. Google has now made it quite simple to change the location of your search in;
Search settings >> Region settings.
From a cursory search, it seems the geolocation is indeed preserved when using the site: operator.
For example, 'site:indeed.com warehouse jobs' returns the exact same localized results as 'warehouse jobs', and both return geo-appropriate results if I switch the search region. The same appears to be the case for Yelp, Craigslist, etc.
"Operators" in this context means specific keywords you can use to refine the Google search results. You could use 'site:blackhatworld.com' and get ONLY results from BHW.
The full list of known operators is fairly extensive, as you can see here:
I forgot to add this in the original query but I meant with the filters in the current language of the page.
Basically I'm searching for a method to find out what people search for on a website
But I guess it depends on the query.
If these pages are static and stored in the cache I would expect the same pages I agree but if i'm searching for search query for a site for a certain language I would expect different result.
site:example.com search--> location UK, London
site:example.com search--> location UK, Manchester
I can filter the language but is the result based on my current location ?
Yes search engine provides high priority for local businesses based on the addresses, content.
Separate names with a comma.
