Link shortener services and negative effect on your email deliverability

  1. 1. Link shortener services and negative effect on your email deliverability
  2. 2. What are link shorteners? Well they are services which shorten your url if that is more than 140 characters long. Some link shorteners are tinyurl.com, bit.ly ow.ly etc.
  3. 3. And yes, they effect adversely in your email marketing campaign. The hackers and spammers often use link shortening services to hide the domains. So, risk remains if you use the same shortening platform.
  4. 4. The shorteners do perfectly well for the social media. But in case of email marketing, it is completely different as you may suffer penalties.
  5. 5. Link shorteners are websites which take in your long link and actually shorten them to your convenience. This sounds promising at first. But you might be the one using it for a white hat purpose.
  6. 6. On the other hand, there might be a hacker trying to hide his malicious link by shortening it. If you look into social media, most of the time, shortened links are used for phishing. Google and other search engines often punish the domains that are shortened and the link shortener platform as well.
  7. 7. The penalties can be blocking the domain you used link shortening on. It is severing when I think within the Email Marketing terms as the whole campaign will suffer. The emails you send can be blocked alternatively.
  8. 8. If that happens, your emails won’t ever reach the recipient. So, all your efforts will be wasted. The money you used on flushing out the emails will go to waste too. This happens because that domain is blacklisted by the search engine platforms.
  9. 9. There are options if you want to consider them. If you want to use Link shorteners that badly, there are scripts that you can install like kissa.be, yourls and more.
  10. 10. Using these you can shorten your own links without going to a third party. The users will trust you more this way. They will know where you are taking them so there won’t be much of a difficulty people face otherwise. The might be costly but effective.
  11. 11. Another alternative for you is to use anchor text in emails. If your links are too long, try using html anchor texts to hide them or even link them to images that will serve you better of course.
  12. 12. People won’t see your links you point out in the post. There are few blacklisted domains which I’ll forbid you to use and those are: bit.ly ow.ly su.pr lnk.co cli.gs fur.ly twurl.nl short.ie. Try to avoid these domains and keep your eyes out for more like these.
  13. 13. These things are constantly updated and you will never know when your so called “Safe” website becomes subject of penalizing your website. Check back periodically with search engines to keep yourselves updated.
