You can specify the location on Bing by including the "loc" parameter in the URL. The format for the "loc" parameter is "latitude,longitude" (without quotes), separated by a comma. Here's an example:

1
https://www.bing.com/maps?loc=47.6062,-122.3321


In this example, the latitude is 47.6062 and the longitude is -122.3321, which corresponds to the location of Seattle, WA in the United States.


You can replace these values with the latitude and longitude of the location you want to specify, and the Bing Maps website will display that location when the URL is accessed. Note that if you specify a location that is not recognized by Bing, it will display the nearest recognized location instead.

Apologies for the incorrect response. It seems I misunderstood your question. In the URL, you cannot directly specify the location on Bing. Bing uses the IP address of the user's device to determine the location automatically. However, you can search for a specific location by including its name or address in the search query parameter of the URL. Here's an example:


https://www.bing.com/search?q=location


Replace "location" with the name or address of the specific location you want to search for on Bing. This will provide search results related to that location.
