What was the best part about using bitly?
First things first, it's a great and powerful tool if you are posting a lot and sharing a lot of information on social media sites where character spacing is an issue, especially on Twitter. Also, it enables tracking and capturing the data about people who access your links, and therefore, it's very useful for marketing campaigns, it can show you how productive your campaign is. And finally, I like that I can make my personal account manage all of my URLs, I can add notes to my URLs and they are nicely organized.
What would you change about your experience with bitly?
The only thing I don't like is the fact that it disguises the address. Sometimes it is used by hackers and others who shorten links to sites with viruses, malicious applications, scareware, malware and so on. I have to be very cautious because I don't know what's behind those links and if I can't tell by looking at the link itself, I'm hesitant to click on it at all.
The overall conclusion is that this is the best URL shortener I have come across.If you want to create, distribute, and store links for future use, Bitly is a great choice. The Interface is really easy to use and allows you to create bookmarks on your favorite sites with just one click. The service Bitly provides removes the fear of losing these websites that you don't know how to find when you need them again. Bookmarks can be shared through social media such as Facebook and Twitter and you will be able to track, in real-time, clicks that are made on your URLs. This could be very beneficial for your own business or marketing campaigns. And in the end, it is completely free to use!
