Allowing visitors to 'switch' between sites

Often when using Geo Redirection between sites, you may need to allow your visitors to switch between sites. This is specifically true when your visitors are travelling. To allow site switching:

  • Create your own navigation links or drop down that link to each of the sites
  • Use our referrer whitelist feature to disable the redirect if the visitor is coming from one of your other sites

Same site redirection with query string only

https://example.com --> https://example.com?lang=fr (FR visitors)
https://example.com --> https://example.com?lang=de (DE visitors)

Some website utilize query strings to inform the server that language change our country change is required. Often this only needs to be done on the first visit.

Redirecting all pages

https://example.com* --> https://example.co.uk

Most often all pages of a site need to be geo redirected. Select this option to redirect all pages of your site including all subfolders. Note that subdomains won't be redirected as they are considered a different website.

Redirecting selected pages

https://example.com --> https://example.co.uk
https://example.com/products* --> https://example.co.uk/products*
https://example.com/collections* --> https://example.co.uk/collections*

In some cases, you may wish to redirect only selected pages of a site such as your product pages. Selecting this option will allow to to specify the pages to be redirected in the next step.

Redirecting a single page only

https://example.com/contact --> https://example.com/contact-uk*

If you only need to redirect a selected page of a site, use this option.

Customized page mapping

https://example.com/products* --> https://example.co.uk/shop*
https://example.com/collections* --> https://example.co.uk/catalog*
https://example.com* --> https://example.co.uk*

If you are redirecting all pages of a site and the site you are redirecting to has a different page URL structure. Use this feature to customize the 'from' and 'to' redirect rules.

Excluding selected pages

In certain cases you may need to exclude selected pages from being redirect. For example you may want to exclude any blog pages from being redirected as the blog is common across all regional sites.

There are four types of page exclusions rules:

1. Page URL equals to
Exclude a page if the URL matches a specific value. For example adding https://www.acme.com/blog will exclude the page if the URL matches acme.com/blog. Note that the https and www is ignored. In this case only the page https://www.acme.com/blog will be excluded.

2. Page URL contains
Exclude a page if the URL contains a specific value. For example adding https://www.acme.com/blog will exclude the page if the URL contains acme.com/blog. Note that the https and www is ignored. In this case all pages containing acme.com/blog will be excluded. For example acme.com/blog/article-1 will be excluded as well.

3. Page query contains
Excludes page if URL query contains a value. For example using a value of utm_source=facebook will exclude the page from being redirected if the page URL looks like https://www.acme.com?utm_source=facebook

4. Page hash contains
Excludes page if hash contains a value. For example using a value of contact will exclude the page from being redirected if the page URL looks like https://www.acme.com#contact
