Long links and URLs tend get broken up in email and look less professional than a nice short link going through your own domain.
Once you have your the link you want to redirect, (length doesn’t matter) you can now redirect them so instead of looking like a big long mess of numbers and letters.
What link would you rather click?
There are a few options to make your link shorter. One is to use a service like http://tinyurl.com. I don’t recommend them because it doesn’t build credibility and it makes you look like a spammer.
I recommend you redirect your own links through your own website . It looks more professional and you’ll have more control over your links.
Don’t worry – it’s very easy-to-do and doesn’t require any programming language.
Here’s how to build your redirect link so it points through your website:
- Create a new blank page on your website.
- Name the page whatever you’d like. For example yourdomain.com/resumeservices/.
- Delete any HTML your web page editor automatically inserts into the page. Then insert the following new html into your html document:
|— START HTML —<html>
<meta http-equiv=”refresh” content=”0;url=Insert-Your-Affiliate-Link-Here“>
</html>— END HTML —
That’s it! Easy wasn’t it. If you have trouble what-so-ever please email me at affiliates (at) distinctiveweb (dot) com.
