Frequently Asked Question

How can I redirect my website traffic to location-specific pages? How will this influence search engine rankings?

If you are using the Apache web server, you can redirect traffic based on the visitor's country, region, or city by using our mod_geoip2 API.

More generally, you can redirect dynamic pages by using one of our APIs. You can write code as part of your site that determines the location of the client's IP address, then have your code redirect the client to another URL based on the GeoIP database data.

Many search engine spiders originate from the United States, so they will see your website as presented to US visitors. To have the search engine spiders index the entire site, you may want to include links to your other country-specific pages on your website.
