How Are You Using Geo Targetting On Your Site?

    Hi ,

    I love the idea of Geo Targeting. I think when a Visitor sees relevant information on site , or even their country name , it personalizes their experience on site.

    You can see some examples here - http://www.goalpost.tv - The Bar should show your country and link to "Football Shirts" with relevant country search and your country Flag.

    I'm using Maxmind Javascript service because the API via PHP doesnt work properly with my Wordpress Caching plugin. Incorrect country reported because pages get cached.

    Anyone needing any assistance getting setup with Geo Targetting - I would be glad to help out.

    Cheers!

    Having Geo Targeting can help a lot especially if you are running real business (selling product for example) and if you have for example seasonal promotion for specific country, or for specific country Holiday...

    In other case, simply listing appropriate price currency for each visitor (based on the country where visitor is coming from) helps more then having visitor changing his own currency etc...

    + to that you can always have appropriate weather reports, displaying relevant suppliers in your country and appropriate timezone and whatnot in addition. That can be really useful feature on every website, but always depending on the website...

    When a company have lot of website to target different countries , geo targeting become very useful so you won't get mess up with your visitors and customers data .
    When we do marketing we do need those data to help you make decision but if your traffic is full of others countries data , it might mess up your decision making . So is better to do geo targeting.
