Installation is very easy and should not make any problems to blog owner with at least 1 successful plugin installation experience.
GeoTargeting plugin is highly configurable, and let's you change anything about how it works without modifying plugin source code. Click 'GeoTargeting' link from 'Tools' menu to open Plugin options screen.
Currently plugin supports 252 countries and other regions. It's not always possible to resolve visitor's IP to specific country due to database inaccuracy. For example, some IPs resolve as 'Asia/Pacific Region'.
Plugin lists all the countries it supports along with their ISO2 codes and flags.
You can test ip2geo lookup for any IP address using simple form on the top of the main plugin screen.
List of supported countries is located just below IP2Country Lookup form:
After you enable "GeoTargeting for Contents" using plugin options screen, you can use the following QuickTag: [GeoTargeted]
|Use this tag to show your contents to single country:|
|Use this tag to show your contents to several countries:|
|Show contents to all countries except listed:|
|Use this tag to show your contents to RSS readers:|
[GeoTargeted] QuickTag can accept 2 lists of countries: either list of countries to show contents inside it ("GeoTargeted to") or list of countries which should not see the contents inside it ("GeoTargeted out").
Countries are identified by their ISO2 code which can be obtained on main plugin page (ISO2 codes are listed in list of supported countries) or here.
Multiple countries must be separated by commas. You can use both single or double quotes inside QuickTags. You can wrap several lines with [GeoTargeted] QuickTag.
RSS readers are treated as separated country (with code "RSS") only if you turn special option on.
You can use this [GeoTargeted] QuickTag anywhere inside WordPress posts/pages as well as inside WordPress theme files like sidebar.php.
Let's consider the following example: you have affiliate offer for U.S. visitors, another offer for U.K. visitors, and also want to show some advertising to visitors from other countries. You should use the following construction:
[GeoTargeted to="US"]Put your offer to U.S. visitors here.[/GeoTargeted] [GeoTargeted to="UK"]Put your offer to U.K. visitors here.[/GeoTargeted] [GeoTargeted out="US,UK"]Put your advertising for non-US and non-UK visitors here.[/GeoTargeted]
After you enable "GeoTargeting for Contents" using plugin options screen, you can use the following QuickTags to show personalized messages to visitors of your blog:
You can use this [GeoTargeting] QuickTag anywhere inside WordPress posts/pages as well as inside WordPress theme files like sidebar.php.
This plugin allows you to send all traffic from certain countries to specified URL.
To do so, you need to enable "GeoTargeted redirection" option on main plugin screen.
After that, you need to create redirection rules: 1 rule for every country you want to send traffic from.
To create a rule, choose country from selectbox and enter URL for redirection into text field.
If you want to add more than 1 rule at a time, click green 'plus' icon on the right.
To modify a rule, simply change its destination URL.
To delete a rule, click its red 'X' icon.
Please note, that all changes to list of redirection rules are saved after you submit the form to the server. Do not forget to save your changes.
You can also enable logging of all traffic redirected by the plugin.
For every hit plugin will record IP address of the visitor, browser, timestamp of the event and 3 URLs: referring URL, requested URL and redirected URL.
You can configure how many records to store in the database and how many days to store logs for.
To view logs, open plugin main page and click 'Statistics' link in the top menu.
On statistics screen you can see number of visitors redirected (by country) as well as browse detailed logs for any country.
You can truncate logs database manually as well as reset countries redirection counters.
WordPress GeoTargeting Plugin uses free MaxMind GeoLite Country database to perform IP2Country lookups.
This database is free to use and is available for download from maxmind.com. You don't have to pay any monthly (or yearly) fee to use (or update) this database.
This database provides 99.5% accuracy level for ip2geo resolution.
Original database is updated monthly, and you can configure WordPress GeoTargeting Plugin to check for updates regularly and download new version of GeoIP database when it's available.
If you want plugin to automatically update the database, you need to enable file uploads in your blog.
If you do not want plugin to perform periodic checks for available updates, you can still update the database in couple of clicks.
To manually update the database, open plugin options page, click 'Your current database is X days old (click to view details)' link and hit 'check now' button.
