A regular URL that has been converted into condensed format by a URL shortener.
For example, the URL “https://www.taglynx.com/about/” can be shortened to “http://ta.gl/about/”.
This is especially convenient for social media (Twitter) and text messages allowing only a limited number of characters.
Shortened URLs can “beautify” a link, making it recognizable and distinctive. This can be a benefit to marketing success, especially when brand identification is a necessity (companies can use their own domain).
Taglynx will track and measure how many clicks you receive on a short URL in real time.
You can use the Taglynx URL shortener or you can connect via Taglynx to your own URL shortener account with Bit.ly, Short Switch, or Google URL Shortener. Short URLs are available for custom accounts only.
