Default Location based advertisements? GAB Feature request.

Morgan,

Is it possible to modify GAB to display banners based on location? For example the user's IP address is know, its location could be looked up and then ad banners served based on proximity to that user. For example, anything in the state of Illinois gets banner X, but anything in Missouri gets banner Y, etc.

There are other solutions that do this but none of them integrate tightly with vbulletin, wondering if you could add this to the next version of GAB ?

Yes, this is a good suggestion. Geo-targeted ads are probably fairly accurate on a country level, but finer resolutions such as at the state or city level can become less accurate, especially for locations outside the US, but even so, it is something that should get added to the program.
