    Hi,

    How can I create a link so that when someone clicks on it, it takes them to different pages depending on their location (country)?

    Thanks for your help in advance

    No, you can't create a link that sends people to different locations depending on their country. You can however send them through a link to a 'hub' point... a server from where they get redirected towards different targets :)

    There are scripts for that for example

    also nowadays since wordpress is all the hype because it is easier and more accessible towards non tech savy web users i suggest you look into this plugin:

    Bevomedia does this and more. redirect visitors based on country/state/city.
    its whats been working great for me and my local clients.

    With wordpress i have prettylinkpro or you can use the free one. place my bevo url in my pretty link redirect. As easy as that.

    Check out smarturl.it as well. Rock solid tool for geo-based redirections.

    Geo-based redirections can be done using smarturl tool. Installing a WP plug-in on your page can also help in redirecting visitors based on country /state.

    Open-Source Geo Redirection Script is the best when it comes to GEO targeting link. Get it from here:

    Yes You can do it. You need to set up a GEO php script on your site.

    can you develop a tool that has a more complicated setup than this? SMH I''ve never seen such a complicated setup in my whole life. why not just make the setup 100 more steps? SMH. I would buy your tool if it was easier to install and setup.

    Hi Wowzers,

    Check out our Geo Redirect tool by visiting our website: Geolify

    You can use this to redirect visitors to different urls based on their location.

    If you want to change the link itself dynamically you can easily do this by using our Geo Content service where you can display different links based on visitor location.

    Regards
