Track all the clicks, see how things change over time

13.Sep.2021

Imgur is a popular website that lets you share images, GIFs, and other visuals online. You can also use short links to direct people to specific content on Imgur.

You can track clicks on those URLs using Bitly's Custom Links feature. This will let you know how your campaign or strategy—including individual posts or pieces of content, for example—are performing over time.

Bitly doesn't charge anything for this service: it's completely free! There are no contracts to sign, either: just a simple form to fill out with the data you want to track about those links. Once filled out, those links will start tracking automatically as soon as they're used.<br>

As an example of how this could be useful, let's say you have a blog post about the history of Imgur. You share it on social media using one of Bitly's short links—but you also include an image in your post.

That way, people who click through to your blog post can also see some visuals. You can then track individual clicks via Bitly to understand how that piece of content is performing over time.<br>

If that specific blog post has strong engagement overall, but not many people clicked on the link with the image embedded in it? That would let you know there might be something wrong with that picture (maybe it doesn't load properly). Otherwise, if clicks are low on both links? Then maybe they'd do better swapped around in the future. You'll be able to see how overall performance changes—and learn from that data!<br>

To track your links, just head over to /a/custom_links and fill out the form with information about what you want to track. Keep in mind that the more specific you are, the more accurate it will be!

You can enter anything you'd like for the link destination—as well as set a unique tag for each custom link so they're grouped accordingly. If you have multiple links pointing to one URL, don't worry: Bitly will let you know which clicks are associated with which short codes.<br>

Then, click "Create." Once links go live, they'll start tracking automatically.

Please note: If you're using a link shortener other than Bitly, we recommend checking with the provider to see if they offer this feature. =)
