Using a Random URL Slug

Using a Random URL Slug

10.Oct.2021

Using a random URL slug – or sometimes called slashtag – is the largest problem facing social media marketers right now.

 

Think I’m exaggerating? What would you do if you just stumbled into an extra 100 website visitors a month? And all it takes is a couple minutes of your time – or, even better, an employee's time.

 

Social media managers and digital marketers will A/B test an ad or landing page like it’s going to change their life, yet they can't spend the extra 2 minutes on social media to make their link “pretty” with a branded domain and custom keyword for the URL slug. 

 

You know what that means? You got it: lost leads.

 

URL slugs also provide a sense of trust and credibility for your social sharers. People will see the branded URL and be like, "Hey, this company knows what they're doing. This must be their website."

 

For example, if I tweeted out something regarding [brand], then my followers would feel more comfortable clicking on it (assuming their follower count is higher than mine).

 

There’s an added benefit: Google SERP (Search Engine Results Page) love it when you do this. This means better rankings and more traffic by simply adding a keyword to your URL. It's another form of link building, without actually have to have anyone linking back to you! 

 

 how can you do this?

 

There are a few ways to do this, but I’m going to go with the easiest answer. You can use URL Profiler or Bitly right now. 

 

Let's say I wanted to create an infographic about digital marketing. Then, the right thing for me to do is use my own domain name, something like www.socialmediaonlinecourse.com/infographic/, so that people know where it came from and don't have any doubts in their mind when they see it on Twitter. But here's the problem: why would I type out all those letters? Isn't there an easier way? Like this? http://bitly/1TT35yN . All of a sudden Twitter users who love infographics will trust that this infographic was created by a reputable source. 

 

URL Profiler and Bitly both have their different ways of doing it, so choose one or the other.
