All new users may sign up and work with Neustar directly.

Features (pages/posts/widgets):

*Insert Google map with custom search and size settings
*Insert Shortcodes: These are geo-ip-specific fields that will dynamically populate accurately for your visitor’s location, as indicated by their ip address [1]
*Insert localized content
*Location-based display settings: You can customize who sees what content, based on their actual location (state, city, zip, metro area, etc.)
*Redirect and display settings: You can set up redirects based on the location of your user.

Additional Widget:
*Businesses: Pick your search term and the number of items and your readers will see relevant local business listings.
