Hi,

 

Recently moved away from UK and continuing to work for my UK employer. Through my work I require to search and update/adjust our online store prices dependant on the on prices of the competitors that are found trough the Google shopping.

 

Now that I moved, I can access google.co.uk and search, however the search doesn't show the shopping results. Can you please help

Thank you

that sounds correct.

 

google has only allowed target-country results to

show only for users physically within the country,

with respect to shopping-ads and google-shopping

for quite awhile now -- by design.

 

using the ad-preview-and-diagnostics-tool

shows a limited number of organic-search

shopping-ads and sometimes a seach-proxy

may help; otherwise, currently, google offers

no way to force such location-based results.
