Sur.ly

Description

Feel free to check Sur.ly demo tour.

Sur.ly plugin replaces the outgoing links in comments, posts, etc (except for whitelisted links of your choice) with the links leading to intermediate pages on your subdomain. When users follow these links, they will seamlessly view the external target pages while technically staying within your domain.

Sur.ly accompanies, informs and protects users when they follow outbound links, so they can never bump into an adult or malware-infected content under links posted by other visitors.

Sur.ly can help you to:

  • Get rid of toxic and unsolicited outbound links.
  • Turn any risky outbound links into safe internal links to avoid Google penalty.
  • Cope with fake users signing up for your site to get backlinks.
  • Recapture users leaving via outbound links.
  • Keep users within your domain longer to reduce the bounce rate.
  • Shorten links down to neat and convenient alphanumeric identifiers.

Installation

  1. Upload Sur.ly plugin to plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Configure plugin in ‘Settings’ menu

Reviews

Perfect simplicity

I didn’t know how to create a subdomain at first, but the support team is rather responsive so they sorted the things out for me (Thanks, guys!) and now everything works fine: all suspicious links are being filtered and replaced with internal links. I’m impressed by the user-protecting feature and the toolbar’s customizable look. It’s easy-to-use, simple and it works!

Good job!

I got too tired of numerous link spammers on my WP blog just when I found this plugin. It did the job amazingly fast. Sur.ly seems to neutralize spam links all at once, users stay on the site longer, and I love the user-protecting feature, it’s nice to know the visitors are safe after all.

Thanks Sur.ly!

It seems, the visitor sessions really became a bit longer after installing this thing on my site, and that inspires me the most. However, I don’t really know if users return to my posts via the toolbar, as you guys promised (how can I track that?). Anyway, I am pretty sure that my outgoing links are now healthier than before, at least, the recent link audition suggested me so. Thanks Sur.ly!

Excellent Plugin

Best plugin to remove spam and help to increase website’s position in Google – no accidental position penalty by Google due to some improper links posted by spammers.
