Track micro blogging with budurl

In this era of micro blogging and with limited message space URL shortening services are in demand. Twitter uses tinyurl.com service.

Tiny URL does provide you statistics for the shortened URL’s you create but theybudurl logo are very basic. I would like to see more details of the shortened URL’s so that I know more about how the information I shared with others is being used. This is weere the service budurl helps.

Some of the features of the service are

  • You can create an account which allows you to keep track of all the URL’s you have created till date. You can view their statistics as well. Having an account is helpful in keeping track of your history which is not possible in Tiny URL.
  • Easy signup process.
  • Once you are logged into your account you can study the traffic statistics that has been their to the shorterned URL’s under the clickstream tab that you have created in the past. The details that are available are
    • the referrer – where was the link clicked
    • the IP address of the device that accessed your budurl.
  • The information is updated in real time (every few seconds).
  • budurl reporting

    Advantages

    • Know more about who is reading the content you shared.
    • How the information is being shared by those with whom you share information.

    Disadvantages

    • Not inbuilt into services like Twitter. For sure tinyurl’s usage has increased because of it being inbuilt in Twitter. Makes using budurl a little more cumbersome.

    Conclusion

    If you like seeing how the information you share while micro blogging then budurl is for you. What I can say is that the statistics information is useful and helpful in deciding what you share.

    An earthling who is a perpetual learner as I constantly find new stuff to learn. I make websites and help to improve their visibility for professionals and small businesses to ensure that I put the food on the table. Each time I realize that I have been in the industry for 15 years it seems surreal as it feels as if I started about a year back but then I realize I have a 13 year old daughter! Some of the skills I have acquired are HTML5 & CSS3 development Website Development and Design WordPress Development Tumblr Development Bootstrap Framework node.js Jekyll Mentoring some bright and hardworking people is something I have enjoyed in the past. Blogging allows me to share my thoughts with whoever wants to hear (or read). Training is another area which I have dabbled in training (web development, SEO and online marketing) and I plan to take it further. At times I do practice Taekwondo and if I can find a partner play Lawn Tennis. Should you have the desire, feel free to contact me.
