URL Shortener by MyThemeShop

Description

Backend Demo

If you are tired of using 3rd party tools to shorten your website’s long, boring URLs, and want to use your own domain to do it – MTS URL Shortener is just the thing you need.

URL Shortener is a must-have WordPress Plugin for webmasters looking to leverage social media. It helps you create a short version of your URLs that you can share on social media, or via word-of-mouth. Long URLs can be hard to pronounce and impossible to remember. Our plugin fixes that by creating a rememberable, custom URL without altering anything else on your website.

It is extremely simple-to-use, and you will be up and running in minutes. No custom configuration is required to make it work and using it is as simple as clicking a few buttons. You certainly don’t need to know how to code when it comes to URL Shortener.

Apart from shortening your own blog’s URLs, you can generate a trimmed version of external URLs as well. So, this is just the tool you need to share that article you found interesting. Unlike some of the 3rd party tools, our plugin lets your track how many people clicked on the short links in real-time. Perfect for tracking how many people click on your shared links, even better if you want to track results from different social media websites.

This plugin loads faster than any 3rd party tool, so your visitors won’t waste time just waiting for the short links to redirect to the final target. It is also customizable so that you can put the right words in your short URLs without having to rely on 3rd party tools’ randomly generated links.

The best feature of the plugin is probably the way it helps you hide affiliate links. We all know how tricky that can be and we feel your pain. That’s why we made it shockingly simple to hide affiliate URLs or referrer data with URL Shortener plugin. You will be sure that your visitors won’t skip your affiliate URL and directly making the purchase without you getting the credit for it.

You can choose the redirection method for your Short Links. You can select between 301, 302, or 307 redirects and have complete control over the link-juice flow.

There is an option to automatically link certain keywords in all your posts to short URLs. This feature is especially useful for affiliates. You can, for example, change all instances of “Amazon.com” in your posts to a link pointing to Amazon.com via your affiliate URL.

When you create too many short links, managing them can be a pain. To counter that, we made it easy for your to organise your shortened URLs into Categories so you can locate them conveniently in the future.
