Using the Radius Per Location extension, you can set a specific maximum radius value for each location on your site, preventing those locations from showing in the search results when outside that range.
For example, a visitor on your site searches for locations within 20 miles from "Manhattan, New York". By default, GEO my WP will search and display all the locations that it could find within that range.
If a specific location is 18 miles away from Manhattan, New York, that location will show in the search results by default. However, if that location has a maximum radius value set to 15 miles, it will no longer show in the search results, even though it is within the 20 miles radius value of the search form.
The Radius Per Location extension can be extremely useful when one needs to limit the radius of service providers, such as delivery services, shipping services, professional services, and others. GEO my WP's search result will then be more accurate and will prevent the visitors of your site from seeing results that might not be relevant to them.
