    I need some WP plugin with which users, when they they visit my website for the first time, choose their country or city and base od their selection they see different content on my WP website. So I need something like this: user visit my website, and a popup appears with list of cities. User chooses one and then he continues vising my website, but content relevant to that city appers on website. And I want an option for users to change their location. Something like when you visit a website which has in upper right corner an english flag, which shows websites other languages if you click on it.

    Here's an even easier idea. I haven't executed this in a while, but I know it's been used by top tier affiliate marketers to great effect.

    Download the MaxMind Geo-IP database / list from MaxMind.com. Find a Geo-IP script that uses their database, you should be able to host the whole thing on your server. Then, when someone visits your site, use PHP to automatically grab their city or nearest geographic location that you have content for. Display that content.

    You can have a sidebar where people can change their location, but by default your site can figure out where they're from. Remove a step, improve customer experience.

    I don't think you will get all these things for free. You really need to spend at-least small money to get these options.

    Hello, try ip2location light: it is free to use, don't know how much reliable is, but you can have a free run.

    Looks good for wordpress users.
    It would be interesting to know where it does retrieve the GEO Location database (its own?)
