How Do I Use Google to Search a Specific Location?

Question: How do I use Google to search a specific location?

Google customizes search results based on user search history, device usage and current location – especially if local intent is present.

In order to see past customization and view search results as they would appear if you were in another location a little tweaking is in order.

Use the near command to check Google search engine results for a city or location that you are not actively located in, plan to visit or are interested in.

Example: Search Google for coffee shops near a specific location.

Search Google for a Specific Location

Search Google for "coffee shop near Portland".


You can even be more specific "coffee shop near downtown Portland".
