Bit.ly

1 Points

If you have ever used the popular website shortener, goo.gl, you’ll be sad to know that it’s being phased out. (3/30/19) However, Bitly is a great replacement! Website shorteners are great so that you (or your audience) don’t have to type in a link that is hundreds of characters long. Bitly is very simple to use.

To use bit.ly:

Create an account through app.bitly.com OR grab the bit.ly Chrome Extension and log in through there.

Choose a website or link that you would like to shorten.

  • If you’re using the website, copy and paste the link into the search bar of the dashboard.
  • If you’re using the extension, click on the extension icon and it automatically shortens the site.

You can customize the site name. After the “bit.ly/” portion of the site, add your own characters that would be easy to remember.

Examples: bit.ly/jmsgrade6

bit.ly/september5

To earn your badge:

Shorten and customize a link through Bitly. Submit your customized link.
