Default Using bit.ly to create links

Sometimes, links are long - and messy looking! If you need to clean up or shorten your links or if you'd like to know how many people click on a particular link - bit.ly is a great tool!

www.bit.ly <---go here

(If you want to track clicks or save all of your short links, create an account. An account is not required to use the services though)

At the top right, paste your long, messy link.

A window will pop up, you can rename the link and then copy the bit.ly/stuff link offered in the box. This link will redirect to the link you pasted in. Easy. Peasy.


Thanks for looking! Follow me for the latest on Nibbles Skribbles:
