Request: Personalize landing pages using GeoTargeting

Today I received a question from a customer if PHP could run on top of a Domino server. In the discussion that followed what the customer wants to achieve it became clear that he is more looking for a script to solve a problem rather than seeking for an integrated solution.

In short,  the customer wants to check the visitor’s IP address and popup a message in case a user from country A is looking at country B’s landing page and ask the visitor if he/she wants to be redirected to country A’s landing page.

A simple case of geotargeting which I did not smash in the face of the customer.

The question remains:

Does anyone have a Domino based solution for this?

A quick search via Google did not resulted in a JS script library containing the country-codes. Thanks in advance for your guidance!

  1. I would suggest a Java WQO agent, that uses MaxMind’s free Geo-location lookup: http://www.maxmind.com/app/ip-location . They have solutions for both city and country lookups.

  2. Something against Googles service? (except that all data probably be stored and re-used for commercial purposes)

  3. Have a look at those to Links.
    Google is implmenting the W3C Geolocation Api, which is already used in Firefox and some other browser.
    If you are using XPage that should work without any prob ;-)

  4. Chech out Quova. We provide the highest quality geolocation data available. You can access the data via an API.

    We have a Domino development framework called PDQ Portal that uses both MaxMind and Google geolocation services. It comes with a CMS and a number of other applications. You can download a evaluation copy from our site if you are interested. NFR Copies are also available to independent developers.
