Pros: High accuracy of geo-targeting content to the right audience from the right country. The plugin extends beyond just post and pages, it appears in other plugins as well.

The pricing model based on and API call is a fair one as the are quite aggressive in caching location of the client to make sure no extra calls to the API is made. Personally tested this myself while in different countries.

Overall: It is a pretty easy to use and setup plugin for Wordpress. There's also a free tier which is really useful for me when making the decision to purchase the product.

This plug-in has been crucial in powering my business.

Pros: Super straightforward to implement and use day-to-day. I recommend this plug-in to anyone who needs to geo-target their content.

Cons: Nothing really, although it does seem that quite a few of the nice-to-have features are under paid plans, but that also makes sense to support the software.

Disabled caching - had to drop the plugin because it slowed my site down significantly

Pros: It did what it was supposed to do - allow me to create geo-specific content on a WordPress site. Using credits cost to much, so I tried using it with a Maxmind database. Worked well, except adding the the database needed to be done through FTP - there is no user interface in the plugin for that.

Support was fast to respond and helped with minor things. Never found a way to make the plugin work a 100% with caching though

Cons: The plugin claims to be compatible with caching plugins such as WP Rocket. However, what it does is disable WP Rocket on the first page load.
Far from ideal in my mind.

The user interface could use some more help notes and a feature to upload your down database.

Ended up finding an alternative, since the caching never got to work.

The best software

Cons: I like least is that , though testing should be given maximum time and maximum resources, Most of time is consumed by business designers/analysts, developers

Pros: It works really well, the support has been excellent. I searched hard and couldn't find any decent alternatives.

Cons: If the plugin breaks then it doesn't look great on the website - the geotargeted text disappears altogether, which isn't ideal.

Pros: I like the simplicity of setup, it just requires a simple wordpress installation and you can start showing or hiding content by your specific preferences. The plugin adds a button almost everywhere where you can select countries, regions, cities, even small towns (by IP range) where you can show specific content.

Cons: I think dev team could improve a little bit more the UX in the admin panel, considering that people who use WordPress tend to be a non-developer.

Overall: As the GeoTargeting plugin website says, the plugin are based on IP's databases that will let you accurately target 99.9% of your users. That database lives in a server and plugins calls the API to return the user location, so that is an incredible feature, because the plugin updates instantly and fast.

Another nice feature is that the GeotWP team think in our money! They have built a "cache mode" that let the site owner save credits (a credit is like a cookie that is spent when a new user visits the site) and spend less money while having the best geotargeting results.

Pros: The ability to add countries to regions so I could consolidate and shorten the length of code required to perform our needs.

Cons: When pricing changed from per license to per API call, our client ended up removing this plugin in favor of another.

Overall: Our client's ecommerce site was able to display pricing in 4 different currencies for 5 different languages. We were also able to display different product images depending on the release date of their new hardware. Very helpful to their marketing team and our overall sales success.

Affordable and works great, we use it on our eCommerce retail site to display targeted offers.

Pros: Simple to use. Just install the plugin and use template tags or shortcodes to display/hide content based on location. Documentation is good. Price works out to be led expensive than competitors and you get great savings by purchasing in bulk. I've reached out to support a few times and they're always helpful and quick.

Cons: Documentation could use some cleanup and deeper explanation, though overall it's good and includes sample use cases.

This is a pretty neat plugin to redirect readers to specific content based on their location and IP.

Pros: The service I've received is top notch. I'm not the most technologically capable person, so anytime I've had a question about how the product works, the response has been clear and effective. I also don't think there is any software like this online, so this is great.

Cons: There isn't much I don't like. Sometimes I wish the capabilities of the redirect were expanded to more than just pages. The setup is also a little tricky.

Overall: Being able to redirect clients to the correct content pages based on region.

Vendor Response

by Timersys on November 22, 2017

Hi Jeffrey thanks for leaving your review. You mention that you would like to see the capabilities of redirects expanded. I would love to know what you have in mind so we can improve the product. Currently we support around 20+ redirect rules that includes not only geotargeting or pages options but also roles, referrers, query string parameters, taxonomies, etc

I love this plugin. It allowed me to set up my Store Locator very quickly.

Pros: We use the plugin to change our pricing page based on location. Really happy with the ease of integration, our developers had no problems

Cons: We have only just started to use the software and so far we have not come up with anything we dislike about it.

All functions work as intended, easy enough to implement. However, location accuracy is inconsistent

Pros: We use this on a Wordpress website. We have found features such as the ability to hide menu items based on location, and the ability to hide content very useful. We have used it to successfully make the website accessible to international visitors.

Cons: While the features are great and work as intended, we have found the accuracy of the location detection to be very sub-par. Approximately 10% of the time, the location detection incorrectly shows content that should not be shown based on my location.

Great way to target location-specific audiences
