This UK SERP problem was pointed out by LukeEales on twitter, the search for “long distance moving companies” is the worst he’s seen, and I’d have to agree.
So let’s break down the 1st page to check each site’s location.
I carried on going but there isn’t a UK based company in the top 7 pages.
What’s even more surprising is some of those sites appear in the from UK Results. There are UK websites that are relevant to the search query, a quick search with “long distance moving companies inurl:co.uk” shows a good selection.
Referring back to the post the early this morning about SharkSEO’s theory that Google is using related searches to generate some of the related searches for “long distance moving companies” does feature locations in the United States.
Are related searches influencing the results in the UK? Even if the search data is from the US?
