We now have a free URL shortening option on our homepage, enabling users to quickly and easily shorten their links using our rb.gy domain.
This service can be used without needing to sign in and allows you to shorten up to three links.
To access the statistics of your short links, you can add a “+” symbol to the end of the link which will open an external analytics page specific to that link.
If you’re shortening a link that someone else has already shortened, you will receive the same short URL that was previously created. What this means is that you’ll be able to see all of the click data from the time that link was first created.
Notes and Limitations
- Rb.gy links do not have an expiry date and will continue to redirect.
- If you choose to create a short URL using the rb.gy homepage shortener, you will not be able to access the Rebrandly dashboard to change/edit the link. The link will permanently be shortened in its current form.
- Destination URLs that our system deems to be malicious or suspect will be automatically blocked.
E.g. If you enter a link that has already been shortened by another URL shortener.
While we allow the shortening of up to three URLs with a generic domain, we do encourage you to brand your links with a custom domain that you own.
