Well, I wouldn't call that blocking foreign traffic, but targeting your ads.

But a lot of sites have hundreds and sometimes thousands of pages listed in Google for FREE and receive the majority of their traffic from these listings.
Buying traffic via ads gives you certain privileges, IMHO free search engine listings don't.
Well given that then why don't I target my incoming traffic. So us, uk and ca traffic would be routed to a page that is targetted towards them. This would be a page with content and ads that I can get paid for. Then I target the remaining traffic to a different page with my big ol' allclicks link and that gets to be their targetted content. (don't think allclicks would pay for this traffic either but it's just an example)

I target content and ads based on geographic regions. Content does not need to be the same for both domestic and foriegn traffic. Makes sense to me.

Personally, I no longer own any sites that depend on ads for revenue so I don't mind foreign traffic. (they have Visa and mastercard cards too!)
