How to Edit a Custom Short Link

Did you make a mistake when creating a new short link? No worries, you can change it quickly and painlessly from within your Rebrandly account.

Simply log in to your Rebrandly account and navigate to your links page:

  1. Find the branded link you are looking for, either by searching at the top or scrolling through your list.

  2. Click on the short link itself, or the ellipses - "pencil" on the right-hand side to access the individual link or edit page.

  1. Click the "..." icon to access the edit mode from the link detail page:

4. Easily edit any aspect of your short link.

You can change your:

  1. SEO title meta tag and destination URL
  2. Link options

After you've made your changes click save and the link will be updated nearly instantly.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 
Changing the main branded link URL or domain will render the old branded short link dead - it will no longer connect to your destination link and will give you a 404 error. If you've already shared this link publicly it will no longer work.

Why would you want to edit your short link?

  • To point people from a static location, like your Instagram account, to your latest blog post
  • To take an old link that pointed at least years event and now points it at this year's event
  • To update UTM parameters within the destination URL
  • To point someone to a more appropriate piece of content
  • To update a bad or dead link
  • To redirect users to a new location
