How to choose the right URL shortener for you

04.Sep.2021

1. Analytics

Paid URL shorteners give you more analytics information than free ones, but which is more important? It's up to you! If your priority is gaining online exposure then the free URL shortener will be more than enough for what you need - if not, get yourself some paid professional features!

 

URLs shortened by a paid service are tracked with unlimited pages and links can be added manually too. Customizable link tracking intervals are also very useful. For example, some people want to track their results after every 24 hours while others may find it unnecessary if they are only interested in monthly performance reports.

2. SEO

 

 

A paid URL shortener allows us to use custom domains rather than using our site’s domain or a 3rd party service to create shortened URLs. When you share a link, the last part of it is what TELLS people where they are going - this part is called the "anchor text", and the more descriptive it makes your URL, the better for SEO.

 

3. Link Tracking

 

 

The ability to track how many clicks each of your links gets from where is something that only paid services give you access to and very useful if you’re running PPC campaigns too! For example: did you know that Google Analytics offer some free tracking features? The paid version of Google Analytics gives marketers even more information so if you want more detailed results then we recommend upgrading at least once.

 

 

4. Security

 

 

A paid service gives you the option of protecting your URLs with encryption, something that is generally only necessary if you want to put up warnings or copyright notices on them. Some URL shorteners also allow you to password protect links, digitize them (so they can be used in print without worrying about their content), and brand them (putting your own logo or name on shortened URLs).

 

5. Privacy

 

 

Paid services don’t usually require any personal information to create an account - most of their logins are handled through social media accounts like Facebook. But for added security they may ask for passport details after sign-up as a way to verify important information before allowing users to use certain features. Keep in mind that free services can also ask for personal information but they may take your privacy more seriously than the paid ones.
