  • Url is mainly shortened to automatically count the number of clicks made per url i.e. it is helpful for webmasters to find how many visitors (unique & repeated) have clicked a particular link. So, they can calculate the number of visitors visited the linked page.
  • For example : If I post an article link in Facebook, I cannot get complete details about how much visitors had visited my website. If I use a shortened url(ex. gofj.com), I can get complete information (like time, country etc)about my visitors.
  • This information is used by webmasters to improve their website, calculate their sales percentage etc.
  • A nice example : Amazon.com posts a link of new smartphone in Facebook. Interested people would click the link. But, only few would buy the product. This will help amazon.com to calculate the sales percentage from Facebook visitors.
  • The links posted by big companies will not earn money for them instead only it is used for only to get visitors count.
  • The money can be earned through url shortening that shows intermission ads.
  • As said earlier, url cannot be shortened directly by ourselves. It can be done only through the tool called as url shortener.

  • This shortened url will be saved in url shortener’s server. Whenever some one clicks the link, a count will be added automatically. It also counts the unique and repeated visitors. If a visitor clicks the link 3 times in a day, url shortener will count it as one unique click and 2 repeated click.
