    Just an idea so dont know if possible but I have some scrolling images with on a site that i'd like to target more specifically to parts of the UK, only England, Wales, Scotland

    can you target based on IP address or similar?

    thoughts on the code on how to do this?

    How do most people find you ? Search, type in or brand awareness ?

    If you own, say, aardvarks.co.uk, have you tried to optimise three landing pages (eg aardvarks.co.uk\englishaardvarks.htm etc) with regional terms and content rather than focusing on the generic home page ?

    Are englishaardvarks.co.uk etc still available ?

    Genuine question to others, could englishaardvarks.co.uk etc use Google canonical processing cross-domain to add weight to aardvarks.co.uk\english-aardvarks.htm etc (and implicitly aardvarks.co.uk) ?

    Could your homepage ask people for their postcode area (albeit with some border issues) or would that deter clickthroughs too much ?

    Could your homepage provide a simplistic map of Great Britain with big blocky clickable areas for the three parts ?

    Just some thoughts.

    Regards,
    David

    The ip address is probably going to be wherever the users isp is based though so it's probably not a great deal of use for UK only.
