    Default Mobile search Location

    I'm a Master student Economics & ICT i've been looking for the difference between the desktop search and the mobile one.

    But now i want to incorporate the location in those searches (i'm using a script) but i'm having difficulty adding the location to the search.

    I've compared two search links with different locations but i'm unable to find the location, but i have a hunch.

    Code:
    /m/search?q=test&pbx=1&aq=f&oq=&aqi=g6-k0d0t0&fkt=87872&fsdt=91140&htf=&his=&csll=&action=&ltoken=fea5a1484b11d
    
    /m/search?q=test&mshr=25&popt=1&pbx=1&aq=&oq=test&aqi=&fkt=36756&fsdt=41221&htf=&his=&csll=&action=&ltoken=431de1ed
    Could ltoken be an indication of a location for google?

    Goto http://LongIsland.mobi

    You should be able to see a local search mobile query in the address bar

    Thank you, but what i'm looking for is to give the location to the mobile site (not local).

    Maybe i'm not making myself clear enough

    So when you search google with an iphone, google asks your location. It's this location i would like to change via the URL (if possible), so I can use it in a script.

    My script uses php curl to get the results from google with a certain user agent. But now i need to expand this with different locations.
