Are You Hiding from Google?

It's a serious question - and one we hope you'll help us answer.

We're trying to see how accurate Google's location targeting can be - depending upon where you are in the world. So we're asking you to send us feedback on where Google thinks you are - and where you really are.

Here's what we would like you to do. Firstly, log in to a Google Analytics account you might have - it works best if this is for a site with little traffic. Then select Real Time tracking.

Next, open an incognito window and visit the website. Look to identify your visit in Google Analytics and check the location.

This is where Google thinks you are. Are they right? Let us know by completing the form below. We're going to collect results from across the world and report back once we have enough data - the more the merrier!

A couple of things to remember : When you connect to your site on a desktop, please use an incognito window - and when connecting on a mobile device, please first deactivate any WiFi connection, so you are using the 3G/4G network.
