    I'm in the US, and want to see South African local search results as if I were searching for them from South Africa. The "Location" setting in Chrome will not let me change it to something outside the US, and I need to see local results FROM the location.

    How is this done? Thanks in advance.

    Just add &gl=za to the end of your search string. There's also a full list of country codes here:
