I have a website based in Denmark that has an English version of the site. Those are the only two languages we offer (Danish/English). Right now I'm detecting the visitors country based on the IP and redirecting if the visitor is from the US, England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand. From everywhere else the visitors just land on our frontpage which is in Danish.
What do you think of this kind of practice? I was thinking there may be something to gain from English speaking visitors who then won't have to search for the flag-button that changes the langauge. On the other hand, geo-locationing is, as far as I know, not a sure thing, so I may lead other visitors than the English speakers to the English part of the site. I'm weighing these things - what do you think? Thanks.
