Pretty Links – Link Management

Pretty Links – Link Management, Branding, Tracking & Sharing Plugin | Pretty Links

Description

Pretty Links helps you shrink, beautify, track, manage and share any URL on or off of your WordPress website. Create links that look how you want using your own domain name!

Pretty Links

Pretty Links enables you to shorten links using your own domain name (as opposed to using tinyurl.com, bit.ly, or any other link shrinking service)! In addition to creating clean links, Pretty Links tracks each hit on your URL and provides a full, detailed report of where the hit came from, the browser, os and host. Pretty Links is a killer plugin for people who want to clean up their affiliate links, track clicks from emails, their links on Twitter to come from their own domain, or generally increase the reach of their website by spreading these links on forums or comments on other blogs.

Here’s a named pretty link (I used the slug ‘aweber’) that does a 307 redirect to my affiliate link for aweber.com:

Here’s a link that Pretty Links generated a random slug for (similar to what bit.ly or tinyurl would do):

Installation

  1. Upload ‘pretty-link.zip’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

  3. Make sure you have changed your permalink Common Settings in Settings -> Permalinks away from “Default” to something else. I prefer using custom and then “/%year%/%month%/%postname%/” for the simplest possible URL slugs with the best performance.
