Setting up URL Shorteners

Setting up URL Shorteners

A URL shortener truncates a lengthy URL into a short one, making it easier to share links. URL shorteners also provide information that can be invaluable to your business—the number of clicks, insight on the people who click them, where these clicks are coming from, and more.
Zoho Social has a default URL shortening service, Zurl, that's available across all paid plans. The link pasted on your New Post window will be shortened by default. To view the original link format, you can paste your original URL in the Publishing window and deselect the Link Shortening icon. The original link will then appear on the screen.
Zoho Social's Publishing Window is also integrated with URL shortener. If you have a account, here's how you can connect it to Zoho Social:
  1. Go to Publishing under Setup in your Home screen.

  2. Click the New Post.
  3. Paste your original URL in the Publishing window.
  4. Now, click on the Shorten link option to shorten the URL.
