Default Getting US Google Results

Hi,

I live in the UK and I would like to be able to somehow search Google and get the results that I would see if I was in the US, particularly with regards to the Adwords results. I was told that anonymizer software would allow me to do this, but when I tried 'Steganos Internet Anonymizer Pro 6.0.5' it very rarely worked and caused lots of problems with my computer.

Please could someone offer some advice?

Thanks,
Joe

When I search Google.com, I still get the same Google Adwords ads, down the right hand side of the page, as I would on Google.co.uk: targeted at a UK audience. I would like to be able to see Adwords results targeted at a US audience.

Steganos Internet Anonymizer Pro 6.0.5 allows you to search anonymously, generating a random IP address. However, more often than not I would get a 404 error or IE would crash and I would have to restart to try again. When it did work it wasn't always any good. The first couple of time I got results for Malaysia and Romania rather than the US.

Thanks for your suggestions, but Brendon Sinclair gave me the simplest way to do it on Anthony Blake's forum, here: http://ablake.net/forum/index.cgi?read=195022

Thanks again,
Joe

Unhappy Re: Getting US Google Results

Hello. I have a similar problem.

When I visit http://www.abcfamily.com, and click "Lincoln Heights", "Full Episodes", then click an episode, it tells me on the episode playback screen that countries outside the US cannot view it. I tried Tor, but it made websites think I was from Germany, I tried some other anonymizer websites, could someone please tell me how I can fool ABCFamily.com into thinking that i'm surfing from the US?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
