URL Shortening Tools with Statistics
By now there are really good URL shortening services.
These short URL tools offer some pretty advanced features like
- visitor statistics
- campaign tracking
- personal accounts
- APIs for creating your own tools
- SEO friendly links
These URL shortening tools for business Twitter usage and beyond make sense:
The list is based on my own preferences. bit.ly is the most popular of those based on user numbers as well. OK, now you can track your Twitter visitors.
By now not only the likes of bit.ly tracks retweets. Twitter’s default t.co URL shortener also does, and you can look up your stats using Twitter analytics.
You want to keep it simple and just shrink a Web address without additional fuss? The very first legacy tool is still available for that purpose: Tinyurl.
Do you have a favorite URL shortening tool that you use (instead)? Make sure to add it in the comment section bellow! I might add it to the post itself sooner or later.
