What is the Best Link Shortener?

25.Sep.2021

Many marketers are looking for the best link shortener to use. It's no wonder, either--with major social networks like Twitter now showing links with their true destination, not just a shortened code.

 

Here’s my list of the best URL and link shorteners to use this year.

1) Bitly is the original link-shortening service, one that has been around since 2008. They were acquired by LinkedIN back in 2011 but remain independent under its parent company’s ownership umbrella. Bitly has about 1 million registered users, all of which can easily unlock valuable analytics on each click through their tools.

2) Goo.gl is Google's own offering in the space-- it has some unique benefits, such as one-button integrations with Google Analytics and Adwords. Google Trends data is available to track the popularity of your links vs. competitors and it’s free to use.

3) ClickMagick is a powerful tool that many marketers still aren’t using for their campaigns. It allows you to track every link you send via email, social media or any other freeloading method - even non-hyperlinked text within an email! ClickMagsk includes all the analytics tools most modern marketers expect such as tracking visitors across devices etc.

4) Shortstack  is another very flexible tool that lets you create shortened links and perform marketing tasks like lead generation and registration forms through those links (and complete forms and more), A/B test links, and generate QR codes.

5)  Snip.ly is a Chrome browser app that allows you to snag any content or link online with their tool which lets you add your own call-to-action (CTA). After someone clicks on your snipped link, they'll be redirected to the original site while still seeing your CTA in the background--perfect for encouraging additional conversions.

6)  Linkroo  is an interesting tool that helps marketers build up their social authority through the use of smart URLs and proper tracking. Once installed in a web browser, it will monitor all click activity and send its data back to Linkroo’s servers where users can receive insights on how their social link traffic is performing.

7)  Sniply  is another powerful Chrome plugin that lets marketers take the advertising power of their pages to the next level. By adding a small snippet of JavaScript, you can transform any page into an ad for your brand or business - complete with analytics tracking, A/B testing and more!

8)  Bit.ly has been around since 2007 and was originally founded by Dom Hoffman (of Facebook fame). Their service allows you to shorten links quickly via browser extensions or mobile apps for iOS and Android phones/tablets. 9) Linkroo  is an interesting tool that helps marketers build up their social authority through the of smart URLs and proper tracking. Once installed in a web browser, it will monitor all click activity and send its data back to Linkroo’s servers where users can receive insights on how their social link traffic is performing.
