You Could Have Your Own URL Shortening Service

Imagine owning a website which provides a service that people may use many times per day, every day.

The service that I’m talking about is a URL Shortening Service.  Whenever you send a link inside an email there is always a risk that the link will be broken up and become unclickable.  Therefore, a URL Shortening Service is vital for today’s marketers.

Wouldn’t it be better to have your own URL Shortening Service rather than use someone else’s?  You can have total control over your website and the links which people submit to it.  You can place ads and banners on your site for products which your visitors may be interested in.  You can also place ads on the ‘feeder’ page too.  This is the page that people see while they are being transferred to the original link.

Also, you don’t need to worry about setting up your website.  The script comes with a desktop installer which has a built in FTP progam and there is no MySQL config needed.

So if you’ve ever considered getting one of these scripts in the past I suggest you click on the link below and find out more about owning your own URL Shortening Script.

P.S.  The link above was created using the script.  Check out the loading page.

P.P.S.  I’ve done some research and I don’t think you’ll find this script at a cheaper price.   You also get MRR.

Installed URLFuse Script at Urlism.com

I’ve installed a new URL shortening script at URLism.com.  The old script worked fine and is still available here but I think the new script looks better and the “loading page” makes it viral too.  I’d love to receive some feedback about this.  Try the two versions of the site and let me know what you think.

Another difference between the two scripts is that the new one doesn’t require a MYSQL database because the URL’s are stored in a file which is uploaded during installation.  Also, there is a simple Admin area where URL’s can be edited or deleted and the number of hits is shown for each shortened URL.

I’ve purchased rights to the script so I hope to put up a salespage (I hate putting up salespages 🙁 ) and if everything goes well I’ll put a link here on my blog.

I haven’t had many comments to this blog so please let me know what you think about the two scripts.  Thanks.

Free WordPress Plugins by MaxBlogPress

I’ve just added a couple of plugins to my blog and I’m really happy with them.  You’ve probably noticed them already because they are near the top of the page.

The first one I added was the Opt-in Form Generator.  I’ve wanted to add an opt-in form to my blog for some time but I was worried that it may involve complicated coding.   However, this plugin makes the process so easy and I was able to add an image too.  The plugin is also very customizable – you can change all colors and the size of the form.

After I installed the Opt-in Form plugin I noticed a Banner Ad plugin.  Like the Opt-in Form Generator, it gives you total control over the appearance of the end-product.  You can place your banners before a post, within a post, after a post or in the sidebar.  You can also use this plugin to show Adsense ads or almost any other type of ads.

I strongly recommend these free plugins and there is an affiliate program too where you can earn 55% commissions on an OTO.  Click here to go to the MaxBlogPress main page.

My Latest Project is Up and Running

I’ve neglected my blog for a while because I’ve been working on my latest website.  I should also say that I haven’t really been in the mood lately for working on my websites and it has taken far too long to do quite a simple project.

Anyway, the website in question is a “URL shortener”.  The script that I have used is probably the most basic out there but that is OK with me because, as I have said before, I’m only a part-time webmaster.  Basically, a user can visit the site, enter their long URL, add a “tag” which relates to their long URL, and the script generates a short URL with the tag at the end.

For example:  www.urlism.com/tag

Unlike other similar sites there is not a membership feature and I’m not sure if or when the links will expire but I am confident that visitors will bookmark the site and use it regularly.  Long URLs really are annoying!
