Add ip address lookup feature to your website

January 27th, 2010

I'm not sure exactly how many of my readers are webmasters, but as far as i can see the poll in the sidebar is going seems that many of you have websites. I'm wondering that because i have something to give you, but you can use it only if you have a website.

Why people are trying to find exact location of an ip address

January 21st, 2010

Hello again. This is my first real blog post here, after the introductory post which i can't count. I want to share with you some data built here on Ipgp.net . In the last month i run a poll on my website and i asked my visitors: "Why is the reason you use this tool ?" . Maybe you remember seeing this on homepage or probably you voted for it.

The possible answers for the poll were:

  • For fun, just to see if this tool works
  • I am curious if other people can find my location based on my ip address
  • I just want to find out what IP address do i have
  • I am checking a proxy
  • I am trying to find the location of a hacker or spammer

The results are the following.

Most of Ipgp.net ip lookup tool users are trying to find someone else ip address: a spammer, a hacker, someone that told him bad words, etc. 21% of the users are here just for fun, and other 6% by curiosity, which is almost the same thing.
