BUSES TOROBlocking Foreign Visitors

Hi

My business is delivers a service not a product. It is not feasible to deliver my service to folks that live more than 50 miles from my office. For that reason I restrict my advertising to one single county in one single state. But, when I go into my Analytics account I find that unknown people from the other side of the planet are entering my website on a daily basis, often from India or Pakistan or countries in South America. I can't tell what their purpose may be but I'm certain they are not checking out my website to determine if they want to purchase the service I'm offering.

I would like to block all traffic to my website other than that which originates in the USA. If that is not possible or is impractical I would like to have my analytics data presented through a filter which only displays the one state I have my business in.

If this is possible please explain what I need to do to set it up.

Thanks,

Christopher
