GeoData File

Asked by: chrisvh 471 views User Questions

Hello, I’m trying to add some specific geo-targeting in the DMA section however a couple of the cities I need to add are not there. Is there some way to update my GeoIPcity.dat file or should I manually type these extra cities in the “Local Geographic Targeting” section?

If I am to manually type the cities in the Local Geo area, is the syntax simply:
City, St

Or would it be just City?

    You either need to use the state/city targeting OR the DMA targeting. Using both of them combines them with AND logic so both fields would have to match a visitor. I’m curious which cities you aren’t finding in the DMA list? The radius of the DMA’s can be up to 50 miles in some areas, so if a nearby city is listed it should pick up your target area.

    Ah didn’t know the radius of each DMA was that high, everything will be fine then.

    Thanks for the info on using one section or the other for geo-targeting, that is good to know.
