Link shorteners can be used to create shortened versions of your url or to monitor the success of your social media marketing efforts by tracking the performance of your links across all social media networks. Blog2Social offers three link shorteners for your social media posts. You can choose either Rebrandly, Sniply or Bitly to shorten your links when posting with Blog2Social.
How to activate a link shortener
To activate a link shortener, go to your wordpress dashboard then to “Blog2Social -> Settings”.
Select either Rebrandly, Sniply or Bitly and click "authorize".
A new window will open, asking you to either authorize the app, enter your login information or to create an account. If you already have a profile, enter your information or simply click "authorize app". If you don't have an account yet, you can create a free account right now.
As long as a link shortener is activated in the settings, all your links will automatically be converted to short links.
Log into your account on http://bitly.com/, https://www.rebrandly.com/ or https://sniply.io/ to monitor your link performance.
Please note: Due to network-specific policy changes, links on Pinterest are published unshortened.
