Any tips on adding locations to a website?


Recommended Posts

Easiest way to explain it would be to look at Groupon, LivingSocial and other deal sites. They show deals/records based on a user's city location. That's what I want to achieve.


As far as I know, there are 3 things involved.


1. Getting a database with list of countries/regions/cities.

2. Country based dynamic dropdown option when posting a record on a website.

3. Showing records based on user's ip address. I am guessing to do this, one must have latitude and longitude listed in the countries database.


I'm in the process of doing that. If you have any tips or information you would like to share, that would be great.
