Support for UK queries was one of our top three requested features since we launched last week, and we’re opening up UK, Canada, and Australia searches for beta testing.
When I say beta testing, what I really mean is that it works great for me, but I’m going on vacation next week and if you see anything broken, I’ll fix it the next week. 😄
We’ve tested all of our major features to make sure data is pulling in correctly, but here’s a few things to keep an eye on as you start pulling your own reports:
- Search Volume & CPC should be properly localized to your country.
- Search Intent patterns look mostly correct – we’ve seen a few image patterns go missing but otherwise we’re getting reliable results. Google Trends widgets have been properly updated by country as well.
- All of our Google searches are pulled through local SERPs, but you’ll still see plenty of .com and US results, such as Quora and Yahoo Answers threads. Google News, Images, & Video results are localized.
Right now we’re still pulling in US .gov and .edu results. I’m going to try to localize that as best we can for the appropriate versions, eg ac.uk and gov.uk for UK results, but that will either go out tomorrow or in 2 weeks.This is now fixed!
