FREE custom URL shortener PLUS stats & analytics for Steem articles!
St33m.it is a simple yet powerful URL shortener created by Steem user @randyclemens for the Steem community!
Four reasons to create your own FREE custom vanity short URLs using st33m.it:
- St33m.it will ONLY redirect to posts from steemit.com!
No other domains are whitelisted, so readers can click on shortened st33m.it links with confidence that they won't be taken to any malicious sites.
- Short URLs are easier to read and use far less characters!
Especially important if you're sharing links in a video that you want people to remember or if sending a link via SMS/text message.
- Custom short URLs are nicer looking and MUCH simpler to remember!
For example, you could take the obnoxiously long URL for my Steem intro post and have a random short URL created like bit.ly does (http://st33m.it/HjycpzN) or you can shorten it with a custom URL like http://st33m.it/randyintro ... a nice mnemonic tool you can easily remember and type out whenever you want to quickly send someone to pages you frequently reference!
- Get stats and analytics! Keep track of all your shortened links and get real-time stats on how many clicks you receive, what countries your readers live in, what website/page they were referred from, and more!
