I run a site that for sales reasons needs to have a UK, European and Rest of the World site. However, at present we simply create three versions of the same site, changing only the delivery charge and tax based on the delivery address. All sites use the same content (in English) and are priced in £'s.
Fundamentally this means we have duplicate content issues (not to mention numerous other problems!). One solution I'm considering is to base a visit on an IP address and use geolocation to deliver the correct content.
Does anyone have experience of this - specifically I'm interested:

As far as I know AOL uses proxy servers which makes it difficult to determine their location. However you can detect they are AOL users and for those users allow them to select their own location.An alternative to Geolocation might be to ask users to select their location on the first visit then set a cookie so that this can be checked in future visits.
