    Hi,

    First off, sorry if this is in the wrong place!

    I've searched around for this but maybe I'm not using the right words or phrases or terminology in my searches to get any results of any use.
    Basically I want to sort and divert / redirect traffic based on what device they are using e.g. mobile or desktop and what country they originate from.

    E.g.
    user visits from Germany on any mobile device ---> Redirect to website X
    user visits from Germany on Desktop ----> Continue to main site
    user vists from Italy on Desktop ---> Redirect to website Y

    Basically, I want to be able to sort and redirect my traffic to where I want based on device used and country of origin in any combination I need.


    Any ideas please???

    I'm running wordpress on my main sites and currently redirect all my mobile traffic to one place.

    You could use a cloaker or roll out your own solution based on useragent, ip, and so on.

    By the way, redirectinng mobile traffic may harm your google traffic.

    For country redirect, I strongly suggest you https://www.maxmind.com/en/home , I'm using them for 3 years :) it's around $20 for 200k clicks
    For device redirect, I don't have any script, I can suggest you something but is not 100% accuracy. Make your own redirect by resolution (ex: 320x120<, red to mobile page
    320x120> red to website; it's just an ex, dont use these resolutions because i'm not pretty sure about them). Or redirect all your traffic to blogger and there red mob users to a website and desktop traffic to another http://blogtimenow.com/blogging/automatically-redirect-blogger-blog-another-blog-website/
    ps: if you are looking to red by specific devices (ios, android, ipad, etc) nothing from what I posted won't work.

    Good luck

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I won't pretend I understand cloaking in any depth as I'm kinda new to lots of aspects of this. The only cloaking I understand is that which I have in my hosting panel where I can
    set one domain to "mirror" another but still appear to be two seperate sites. I had to do this recently when I brought a personalised domain (dottybargains) and the ebay affiliates sign up form didn't recognise it forcing me to sign up to a dottycom just to complete the sign up with them. I then had to cloak the new domain which I had no need for other than to sign up to ebay to mirror the real one. Stupid ebay lol.

    Ironically, I make more from the porn than I do the my sales / offers website. I barely get a lone hobo wander through my offers website yet my porn website gets traffic all day long with little to no effort lol.

    RE Google mobile Redirect Penalties:
    All I'm currently doing is redirecting all mobile traffic straight to juicyads using their own code and some rewrite rules I found on the net at the htaccess level and sending the unsold to plugrush (a technique I picked up here). What I want to change that to is, to continue to redirect traffic to juicyads but if I have any region specific or device specific offers to be able to pick out those regions / devices and redirect them seperately while allowing the rest of the traffic to continue to JuicyAds unaffected.

    Recently I found some region / device specific offers that look like that may pay well for the odd lead here and there so I figure why waste all my mobile traffic diverting the whole lot when I could just pick out the traffic these offers want (region / device) and send them only that.


    :)
