Interested in learning more about Geolocation software and Responsive Site. Anybody looking into this? I specifically want to run ads on a web page according to the users location.

Probably above my pay grade in understanding (!) but wanting to study up on it

I'm working on a GEO location setup for a site. Jump in and give it a try it's a very interesting interactive feature.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

REading and watching and wondered if you guys have any thoughts on this. I am trying to do a version of relocation marketing (hope that is the right term). End result - when the person searches specific image links will show according to the searcher's location

Hope that makes sense

If your going to build a custom application then your going to want to have your adds in a database. Then you can query the database using the geo location of the user to get the relevant ones.
