Create A Segment Based On What Country Contacts Are Located In

About this task

The Country Name criterion allows you to create segments based on the country contacts are located in.

The GeoIP Country metric is based on the most frequent IP address recorded for a contact in the 14 days prior to the most recent open/click activity. This means the IP that is returned is the IP that occurs most in that 14 day period. It does not necessarily indicate the country where they reside or the location of the most recent open/click. It also does not take into account any country data that might be stored in fields.

For more information on the GeoIP Country metric, see GeoIP Country Metric.
