    bit.ly is the default url shortening service offered by Twitter. It is my favorite url shortening service since it offers built-in link tracking and analytics, a cool sidebar bookmarklet, a firefox extension, native Twitter posting support, and more!

    Adf.ly is the best url shortner service i've ever heard of. They give you $4 per 1000 clicks, just try it really good

    I'm surprised that people use adf.ly in their business - no AR will let you send out emails with adf.ly links. And I would certainly NOT click on them/unsub from your mailing list.

    I am currently using Linktrack.info - The Best Link Tracker and Ad Tracker Ever
    $6.95/month for the 'personal' is probably sufficient for most marketeers
    There is also a 'professional' for $24.95/month which is absolutely everything
    you'll need to keep track, change and evaluate your campaigns.

    Other reputable link services are:
    ClickMeter: Click tracking, Link tracking, AD tracking
    HyperTracker.com - ad tracker


    Clickmeter is more expensive and fancy. I don't like their pricing structure
    at all TBH, it gets expensive fast - for link tracking anyway
    Hypertracker is more oldschool but offers everything you'll need

    the best shortening service advice I could give is to use your own. Buy a short domain name, install a redirect script.

    You may have already considered this, and have your reasons for not doing so.

    I use BestDamnRedirect. It may still be on sale via a WSO.

    But that is the best way, in my opinion.

    I use YOURLS for my shortener. You can use it to not only shorten your urls but also to add branding and credibility. When the customer/client sees a link on your domain, it adds to the trust factor. Unlike bitly, when I want to change where the link points, I can.

    I have been using TinyURL & I have had no reason to complain .
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[7536806].message }}
  • Goo.gl, bit.ly, TinyURL, and adf.ly are one of the too many URL Shorteners that I use on a consistent basis. I've been using TinyURL for years now.
