7 Reasons Why You Should Use Smart Links to Your Blog

by M LeMont

I was standing in line at a grocery store,  watching a guy try is level best to get a date with this girl.   "Hey, do think we can get together and go to a movie or something."  She looked at him from head to feet and said, "I don't think so." 

"Why not, I'm what you've been looking for?"

"She rolled her eyes, "I can't believe it, you're trying to talk to me, and you got one of those welfare phones!"  

Wow! Cold and direct. Actually, it was worse than that my sweet tea, it was a dumb phone that did nothing but let you talk on the phone.

Anyway, I see the same thing with people who use dumb links for their blogs that gather no information.   

But smart links are like smart phones they track and gather data information that can help you market your product. Bitly.com is the leader in the shorten and smart link industry.  And the application is free, quick, and easy to use.

It's so easy I'm not going to explain how to use it. I'm going to roll right into the benefits. Well, okay, here's one tip for those not technically inclined. Take your original link, copy and paste it inside the Bitly box and  the app will convert it to a shortened and smart link.


Here are 7 things you can do with a Bilty.com shortened and smart link.

1. Track your stats

Bitly keeps track of your retweets, clicks, Favorites, Saves/ On the dashboard you can see all this information at a quick glance. Click on any stat and get more detailed analytics, like which websites are referring track  to your site, and performance graphs of your link. You can even keep track of your competition.


 2. Make it your own.

Customize your  links and brand them with a  "Bitly for feelings".  Such as "luvit.me or LOL links or use your own name, or domain name.


3. Bundle your links.

You can bundle links according to the category, projects, and track the results under a specific tab like "#MRetweetTrain"  tab.


4. What trending in realtime

Bitly has a tool called Realtime that shows what's links are hot and what's not in social media, country, or topic.  This is an excellent tool because it shows what's popular at the moment, what users are reading, and what links are generating the most retweets, and  clicks.


5. Smart phone App

Bitly iPhone app can generate smart links when you need one on the spot. It also has a Chrome plugin to shorten links and check your stats without going to Bitly's site. Now how convenient is that?


6. WordPress Plugin

For Wordpress users, there is a widget to save time by automatically linking to your blog posts.  You can also connect to other platforms like Hootsuite, Twitterfeed, Buffer.

 7.  Size and appearance matter

 Since the size of the URL counts in the 140 characters Twitter limit, you have more   space to create eye-catching headlines.  Plus, the fancy custom URL attracts attention.

Now if you found that you learned something new from reading this article, then I want you to think how much you don't know about social media.  I built a Twitter platform in less than 12 months organically one person at a time.  I reveal the secrets in my latest book How To Gain 100,000 Twitter Followers, Secrets Revealed by An Expert.  

The information contained in the book is worth the price of a college education to anyone who wants a significant presence on the web. Anyway, here's the link if you are one of those people who don't mind paying for high-end content and want an unfair advantage.  52 Reviews 4.9 Rating Top Rated Category
