How to obtain a location from the searcher

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

There is a location input box on my landing page.  Is it possible to auto populate this field based on the seracher's location?  My location input box can accept zip code, city name or state name.

 

thanks.

Hi Duncan,
No, unfortunately there is no way to get the users home address from AdWords.

Hi Duncan,
Yes, this is possible but it's not a feature of AdWords.
I'd start here - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5514912/how-to-find-users-location-during-a-web-site-visit

Hope that helps.

Thanks Dave. We had already implemented the IP approach, but I was hoping to be able to obtain the location that is tied to the user's home address, vs. the location of his IP.

I'm not very familiar with Google User ID, is there anything there that can help?

thanks.
