Advertising revenue is an important source of my income, which means I'm always looking for way to keep our advertisers happy.

We've recently been approached by a manufacturer we've been wanting to land for years.
Their request though is that we be able to geo-target the display of their ads, specifically starting with LA and NYC.

Is there a way to serve a custom island based upon Geo location(s)?
Does anyone know of a script that would work?

Any help would be most appreciated.

Best,
Frank B.

Never tried it but here is a place to start.

It comes at a cost but it appears it should work either site-wide or used in a island.

I believe that Adsense has a way to geotarget advertisers, but I've had zero experience with utilizing said functionality; researching this type of service isn't that difficult when using a Search Engine.

Relying on GeoIP services could cost quite a bit of $$, as it takes a significant amount of time to manage these large IP databases; this will be especially true if you end up utilizing a service API (which often have resource limitations, and can throw 504 errors when you hit any hard limits imposed by the service provider).

There are quite a few GeoIP providers these days, such as MaxMind (which is one of the oldest I've ever used), or IP-API (which is what is in use in the UBB.threads 7.7 Control Panel).

I think google does but it will be a google ad not one you create on the fly.
Unless you provide the ad to google and pay.
