A simple redirect was created for each of the sites compared. All of them redirecting to the same page (Reddit.com, not that it matters). The url was then tested using KeyCDNs Performance tool.
The tool was executed four times in quick succession for each of url shorteners. The first result was discarded for all of the providers, giving them all optimal caching conditions. The table below shows the average of the time to first byte of the three runs.
KeyCDN was chosen as none of these services use it (that would give them an unfair proximity advantage) and because the performance tool does not follow redirects, allowing us to measure the time for the actual redirect instead of how long it takes to load the final site.
I encourage you to do your own testing. Your milage may vary.
You can add viewer data to the redirect destination using token replacement. Clickable.me automatically detects if any of these tokens in the table below appears in the destination URL and will substitute before redirecting the user.
