As my website has 95% USA users I want to see how things look when I am searching for certain things as if I was i the USA. As I'm in New Zealand it NZises all the results .

How can I see the results from google as if I was in a different location/country?

Check out TunnelBear for a really easy solution, it's a pretty simple VPN application that will tunnel you through to a US server, thus allowing you to view things from a US perspective (also has UK support if that's any use).

Other than that, there are a temendous amount of other VPN options available that you could check out, though I can't recommend any others specifically.

Yes a VPN to overseas would help but shouldn't there be a much easier way of doing it?

You can get Google to work 'as' (just click the '' link on the bottom right) but in my experience, deep down it still does some localised things.

Honestly, TunnelBear makes it so easy I'd almost suggest it was moot. ;) You have a gauranteed US view of the world that way.
