This is strange, the following phrases and words return India as location:
1. here 2. right up your alley 3. idk 4. here and there 5. the computer room 6. pgh
PlaceFinder assumes that your query string describes a place or address and returns the best result that can be found. There are towns in India called "Here", and "Up", and airports in India with airport codes "THE" and "PGH". There is no place called "IDK", but PlaceFinder finds a similar sounding "ATQ" airport code.
is there a way to limit the search within certain fields like city, state, country? May not be able to completely eliminate certain phrases from returning a location, but could help in narrowing the search space, and so reduce the chance of getting an unintended location response. Interestingly people tend to set location as 'somewhere', 'here' quiet often.
