    It seems like my mobile browser check scripts are not always correctly identifying mobile traffic as I often see mobile users hitting my standard Desktop CPA channels.

    What is everybody using these days for mobile browser checking?

    I also need a good working Geo-IP redirection script so would love suggestions on that. Years ago maxmind seemed to be the goto provider. I'm not sure $24/month is worth the investment. What are everybody's thoughts about that, and/or any other viable Geo solutions and mobile detection?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, I know that I often answer my own questions. That's what makes me good at the things I do. So if anyone else is looking for the easiest solution to this it's relatively easy to setup a P202 ClickServer installation with some advanced routing functions.

    For example, I was able to setup campaigns with rotating urls matching very specific criteria such as country, and device type by creating all the campaigns with correct links first, and then setting up advanced redirection rules with a P202 Smart Redirector. It did take a little while to sort through everything, but all is well that ends well. I now have P202 redirectors that correctly route all my traffic to appropriate offers based on both device type and geoip.

    Pretty good stuff really. Not that hard with a bit of thought. It's worth doing if you are not adequately segmenting your traffic during ad buys or if your traffic source is ultimately always going to have a mix of countries and device types.

    I left out the best part, which is of course that you can use the self-hosted version of P202 which means your only cost to do these types of geo-redirection is the cost of your domain. Since you were likely going to use your own domains anyway - it's basically free to do these very elaborate redirection schemes.
