Ghost Pro: whitelist/blacklist by zone to allow/restrict visitors from specific countries

It would be useful to be able to restrict or allow visitors from specific countries. This is trivial to accomplish when self-hosting, but it would be nice to have it as an option in Ghost Pro.

I’m 90% sure you would get penalized by Google if you block some countries

Interesting point; do you mean just from an advertising perspective or also including indexing, SEO, etc.?

I was talking from an SEO perspective but I can’t find the original article to back my statement.

However, I found a similar one where he says it should be okay to block one country if you don’t block Googlebot.

I understand some countries are problematic, but I don’t like to risk getting a site deindexed by blocking a country.
