    Google local vs web

    If I go to, I have the option to return results from "South Africa" or "Web". choosing "web" does not give the same results as teh same search at

    Can someone explain the difference between SA vs Web in terms of what SEO works need to be completed to rank well in both result sets.

    The first category is relevant for a geographical area, whereas the other one is more general. The idea is that if the former better suits your "local" targets, the latter is dedicated to returning the best worldwide results to your query.
