    Hi,

    EDIT: Sorry the Title Should say "...my site Ranking PAGE #1 in Google..." not Ranking #1
    Sorry about that...

    So I've had a site for about 2-3 months. I am from the USA, and my buddy is from the UK. When he searches Google.COM, he can see my site at #3. When I search Google.com I cannot see it anywhere. I asked a couple more people to look that live outside of the US, and they are saying they see it at #3 as well... I then asked people from the US to see if they can see it, and they cannot.

    When I look it up on Scroogle.org, I can see my site ranking at #4...

    Its been this way since I built the site, 2-3 months ago.

    Someone suggested that the data centers may be out of sync, but that doesn't make sense that datacenters would still not sync after 2-3 months, would it?

    Many thanks in advance for anyone who can help with this...

    This site could have huge potential, if I could just figure out why its not showing up to USA searchers.

    Thanks!

    Most probably your buddies in the UK are looking at http://www.google.co.uk and not Google.com

    It does vary. I check google.com for US sites , then I check traffic travis and it differs alot.

    Also I understand it differs if you add the gl= string to the URL when using google.

    If you pm me the site I will run it through traffic travis/MS if you want?

    Yeah if you want to be sure you are seeing how they see it from their country, get yourself a vpn with multiple exit points and vpn into UK, then run a search.
    Also clear your cache too.

    ...

    Thank you all for your responses... Again, as I stated in my post, when they check Google.COM they see it, no matter which country they are in... Google.COM (like I said before, not their specific Google from their country).

    If I run Traffic Travis v4 Pro, I can look at specific countries. I am #1 for Google UK, but nothing for Google.com. They can see me at #1 for Google.co.uk, just like I can, but they can ALSO see me from Google.com

    And no, they aren't logged into their GMail accounts or any Google accounts that would default it back to their specific Google Country.

    You should get them to try what mrblue suggested. Also I know it sounds obvious but check they aren't logged in and check they army bring redirected to google.com

    I feel a bit of a case study coming on:)

    You beat me on this.
    To op, always clear cookies then use that plugin.
    You can also sign up for vpneo free trial (it takes less then a minute to register), load a vpn for the country you want then re-ckeck yourself without asking your friends to do it.
    I want also to tell you that i experienced that many times before, it will just take sometime to rank in US so just build links and wait.

    Just put this after your search in the address bar

    Code:
    &pws=0
    It makes certain that personalized search is off. Then report back here.

    I am not new to ranking websites... I have methods to rank me #1, and have done so successfully with a mutliple number of sites...

    Its just this one particular site is giving me a problem, and I don't know why.

    I've tried clearing my Cache, doing the VPN thing, etc... Doing it at my mother in laws house on her computer, nothing...
