    I need to tie accounts with the ip location but when I check what is my ip sites they show two different locations for the ip depending on the site used. I tried like 4 and half show one and half show the other location on the other side of the states.

    How do I know which is the right one?

    Have you tried clearing the cache of your browser?

    Before you test your proxies, you can use custom Firefox settings.

    Delete all your history and cache, then close the browser and open it again. Then you can set your proxies and check the location.

    And never use Chrome. For best proxy uses, go for Firefox.

    Different sites use different databases to determine location and you can't really say that x site is good and y site is bad.

    I think there's no good solution for this, you can either accept the location or refuse it.

    With most providers you can replace the proxies once per month, try to get proxies, where the location is unmistakable.

    It's not just that different sites would show you different cities for the same proxies, but you can experience that a US proxy shows up as Canadian on some sites or vice versa. I think the only way to combat this, if you get proxies which is clearly from this or that location
