    Hi All,
    I've really discovered this tool and I was wondering how accurate the "From my calculations, you are physically in ..." is? How could this tool cope with somebody using a proxy server?
    Cheers,
    Johann

    It's 99.9999% accurate based on the IP making the request (a proxy server of course will get around it).

    Well, I would guess 99% of the users don't use proxies, so... But who knows, you would have to as Google.

    Ok, what I've missed in " is the country, as there's a "disclaimer" for local targeting. So the 99% accuracy is for country localiasation, which might well be achievable (class A IP). From my own experience, local campaigns using longitude and latitude haven't been very succesful in terms of volume. Not sure what's the accuracy when you go down that level of geo-targeting..
    Cheers,
    Johann
