Perfect example of a narrow-use plugin that does a single task extremely well, without padding it out with lots of fluff. Like one of the other reviewers, I'd been struggling with a more well known and well used GEO redirection plugin with no luck. This one worked first time.

I was having trouble with a better known redirection plugin so I tried this one and had it up and running in seconds. Brilliant!
