Use Bitly generated shortlinks for all your WordPress posts and pages, including custom post types.
WP Bitly is the easiest way to replace the internally generated WordPress shortlinks with Bitly generated shortlinks. Even WPBeginner uses it (this isn't an endorsement from them, I found the article almost by accident)!
Provide WP Bitly with an authorization token (automatically generated for you by Bitly), tell it which post types you'd like to generate shortlinks for, and forget about it! WP Bitly does the rest for you.
Shortlinks are a great way to quickly share posts on social media like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Just finished writing an amazing post and want to share that post with your friend? It's a lot easier to text message a shortlink than the entire address.
WP Bitly also provides some insights (via a metabox on your edit post screen) as to how your link is being passed around, and who's clicking on it.
*Someone out there is selling a plugin with the exact same name as WP Bitly. Just to be clear, it is not the same plugin. This plugin is open source and free, and will remain so forever.
