All Google's services are tied up together so the response is spot-on that you should check where Google things you are.
Try the solution before getting on your high horse.
Can we please keep the irrelevant responses out of this thread?
He's right though, the question "why would you want Google to know where you are?" is irrelevant to the topic.
Have you tried ChuckFinley's suggestion? What happens if you use Google with a different browser, does it still think that you're in a different state? I assume it would, but it's always best to be sure.
Yeah I've changed my location from the search bar manually to my zipcode, but whenever I do "auto locate" or whatever it is, I still get pointed back to Dallas, TX. I've tried Firefox, and I'm not sure if it's just a Google thing, becuase if I go to any website that requests my location, let's say Redbox, LA Fitness, etc, they all point me back locations near Dallas.
I am assuming it was a VPN that I used (wtfast) in the past, but I've removed that, and restarted since then. I'll try clearing my cache, and seeing if that does anything. But that IP locator website that was posted above has my current location correct, so I'm not sure what the problem is..
