I noticed Easy Redirect Script (from easyredirectscript.com by Jason Fladlien & Wilson Mattos) while researching for link management software that allow me to redirect/cloak my url, conversion tracking and reporting system. On top of those features, I am hoping to get one that allow me to perform split test, rotating,
There are many other link cloaker and redirect scripts or services that I have found. I have listed below. If you have better software that can do the jobs, do update me by commenting on this post. Thanks in advance 🙂
Paid scripts are build on WordPress platform
- shortywp.com – ShortyWP. This scrip seems like is created by the same developer as LinkTrackr.com.
- Pretty Link Pro
Paid Hosted solutions
- LinkTrackr – Seems like it is created by the same developer as ShortyWP.
I understand that there are free url shortener services like goo.gl, ow.ly, bit.ly, tinyurl, budurl, etc. You have no control on how these services will handle your links. Read their term and condition, based on their definition links can be deleted. Another factor is that the reporting feature is not as rich as many of the paid option. I don’t feel safe to have my links hosted with them. After all my effort to use these links, the last thing I want to know is that the redirect link is gone.
- Yourls.org – Your Own URL Shortener. The software is written in PHP script and is free and open source. It’s is no as powerful than
those paid version, but does provide you with simeple link management features.
What Easy Redirect Script Can Do?
EDS (Easy Redirect Script) is a cloaking script that allow you to create a cloaking link that can hide your affiliate URLs, and redirects to the actual page. With ERS, there are various ways provided to redirect your links: SEO safe redirects, stealth pages, stealth redirects, splash redirects.
One plus point for EDS is that you do not need a wordpress to be installed (this is great for those that are using others CMS).
Point TO Note
Once you purchase Easy Redirect Script, you have Unlimited License adn you can install in many of your domains. However do note that there is only 1 year for the free upgrades. I cannot find any related information on the upgrades after the first year.
