WP Shorties


Professional url shortener for click tracking and affiliate link cloaking.

Tiny URLs count

WPShorties makes the tiny URLs you always wanted to push affiliate offers. Get shortened URls in no time. Short and wellmasked URLs sell better and convert better.

Cloaked URLs sell

WPShorties makes URL cloaking easier than ever. URL cloaking equals link cloaking equals redirecting clicks, so all this translates directly into likely higher click-through rates and enhanced split testing of multiple affiliate offers simultaneously.

Redirect clicks professionally

WPShorties allows you to send clickers to selected destinations without them even knowing where they are really going to land. Use it to find out quickly which of your landing pages convert best.

Multi directional distribution

WPShorties lets you select the probability with which a visitor is redirected to a certain page. That means your short and cloaked URLs can redirect each click to a different destination.

Open multiple URLs with a single click

With WPShorties you can force visitors open multiple pages with a single click, i.e. your facebook page, your twitter page, your youtube channel and your subscription page all at the same time and with one single click. Think about what this can do for your affiliate link cloaking.

Click tracking program

WPShorties tracks the clicks. See at a single glance what’s getting the most clicks: the gross numbers and a detailed log giving ip addresses of clickers, their referral url, date and time of their clicks and the redirection address. Click tracking is something all affiliate marketers really should be doing.
