    Hi all,

    I have seen some sites where I visit them it shows my current location seamlessly integrated into the text of the webpage. You know like on those fake google cash blogs that say mrs x from "city name" has made $5000 a month!

    Anyway can someone please point me in the right direction on how to set that up on my site. I want it to display the city location of all the visitors and populate that into my page.

    I tried googling for an answer honestly, but i was having trouble coming up with a search string that could get me results.

    Thanks!

    What you will need is a script. A script that will grab their IP.
    Once you have their IP it will translate it to the country / city whatever and you just need a small db.

    This script should help you get started.
