Create Short Url

Users who click on your short url will be redirected to the first destination where they satisfy all the selected filters. The default destination will be used if nothing else matches.


Default destination [+add]

Used if none of the criterias below are met.



Examples

Short URLs can be used for a multitude of things. Having a short url is in itself useful to share links without taking up a lot of space. Clickable.me allows you to do more than simply shorten your urls!

Redirect to Google Play or App Store

Promoting an app or video game? Share one short link on your website that automatically detects the users device and redirects them to the correct store. Simply add two destinations - one to your App Store with an IOS filter and one to the Play Store with an Android filter.

Let the default destination be your website or Steam page (desktop users will be redirect here).

Affilate Marketing? Redirect to nearest store

You are likely to have visitors from all over the world if you have a blog - but not all every affiliate marketing partners ship internationally. Use Clickable.me to redirect your readers to different partners based continent or country with an industry leading 99.8% accuracy.

Guests can access the location information on a per continent level.

Enrich URLs with data

IP address data can be expensive - let Clickable.me enrich your tiny urls with information about the viewer as they are being redirected instead.


Speed Comparison

Redirecting users will always be slightly slower than sending them directly to your website. All URL shorteners are not created equal though - some are faster than others. It all boils down to where the servers responsible for the redirect are located in relation to your users.

Clickable.me is built to be blazing fast ⚑️ around the globe.

How was this test conducted?

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.


Enrich with Viewer Data

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.

For example https://example.com/[COUNTRY_CODE]/article.html would redirect a user from Denmark to https://example.com/DK/article.html while a viewer from Canada would be redirect to https://example.com/CA/article.html

Geographical data is based on the users IP address. Device information is derived from the user-agent header supplied by the users browser. Do not rely on this data for authentication.
