HOW A LINK ROTATOR AND URL FORWARD WORKS
Link Rotator Pro is an incredibly powerful and flexible tool that will redirect traffic (url forward) from a portal to almost any number of destinations. You place a url or link on your website or in your ebook. But when someone clicks on this, the Link Rotator Pro does a url forward and redirects them to a website completely at your control.
This is helpful in many circumstances.
LINK ROTATION | URL ROTATION
Let’s say you have a blog or website where you send people to affiliate links. And let’s say you need people to be rotated among different links either because you are sharing traffic with someone, you want to keep things fresh, or whatever! A simple url forward will not work. Instead, Link Rotator Pro will let you direct that traffic as you desire, even customizing by time of day, day of the week, number of hits allowed, and more. You can even have it turn links on and off based on the date! So you control how a url forward is done, when it is done, how often, and how many times! It’s crazy!
E-BOOK LINK MANAGEMENT | URL FORWARD
For e-books, using a tool like Link Rotator Pro is critical! When you publish an e-book, it is out in the world…and normally out of your control. And if you have urls and links in your e-book, you may have need to change them at times. Well, if you did not set this up to take advantage of a url forward or rotator, it would be too bad, right? Not with Link Rotator Pro! If the link or url you placed in your e-book is a Link Rotator Pro link, then you can log in and change the destination for the url forward for that link at any time.
This is critical with e-book affiliate links because companies often change affiliate programs, links, promos, etc. Under normal circumstances, this results in a dead link. But if you have been doing a url forward with a link rotator, you just need to change your destination or url forward to match the new affiliate link or program, and you are set. And if you decide you no longer want to do a url forward to direct traffic to an affiliate site, you can divert the traffic elsewhere.
The trick to success with links in e-books is to start by inserting urls that go directly to your link rotator for a url forward rather than to the final destination. This way, you have total control over where people land whether that e-book is in your possession or has been passed around thousands of times.
LINK TRACKING | URL TRACKING
Tracking a URL Forward
Your Link Rotator Pro account is also an excellent tracking tool, telling you how many times each link has been clicked, how often each destination url has been provided, and more. Everytime the system does a url forward, it adds to the counter. And you can also configure it to ignore your own IP address and the addresses of others…on the fly. And you can reset your link counts at any time to see how your URL Forward is working.
And remember that this is more than just some “tinyurl” kind of url forwarding service. In those types of services, you often do have any control to change the destination to which the url forwards to. With Link Rotator Pro, however, you control when there is a url forward, to where the url forwards, and how many times there is a url forward!
