    You'll rank differently depending on location.

    Ranking nationally is different than ranking locally. Google tries showing you local results as often as possible.

    You also rank differently based on the user. Try using Google while logged into Gmail and then on incognito.

    If you're not using anything that tracks your location then you'll only see national rankings. Local rankings are used to help people find local solutions. When you search for a plumber, you want to find someone close to you - not 3,000 miles away.

    To see actual results is quite difficult. Some of the things Google uses to determine your rankings are:
    • Search history
    • Location
    • Device
    • Social media
    If you use an android device there are even more factors.

    What I do is turn location services off, log out of gmail, open firefox incognito. Even then, you can find different results than the person next to you.
