I recently got a deal to display a banner on a website, but it can only be show to US visitors. Is there a script of some sort available that would let me do that? Or is it easy to implement myself?

WHy only US visitors?

Because that's what they want :) It's a US specific product, but my site gets a lot of international visitors. So they only want US visitors to see it.

I live in Spain (actually Mallorca island)
I dont understand why you want only US. I suppose that by law they must be a resident in the US to buy the product. Why not just let the english speaking through and tell them they cannot purchase the product unless they are resident in US
There are CGI and Perl scripts that do this (forward referrer to?
Lastly, there is nothing worse for someone abroad like me to type in a .co.uk URL and end up getting referred to the spanish area of the site or 2 another site altogether. This is happening more and more frequently now.
Hope this helps
