Geo search gives strange results




I am trying to use the /geo/search API to get a place id based on a “standard location”, and I am seeing some strange results.

For instance, searching “NYC, USA” gives me a place in Turkey (“full_name”:“Usak, Türkiye”,“id”:“29136b3b229e89b8”), “LA, USA” gives me a place in Argentina, etc.

I have tried filtering my search with different parameters, for instance giving my IP address, setting the granularity to city, etc. But to no avail. Still getting these pretty bad results.

Has anyone encountered something similar?
