We all use URL shorteners, including bit.ly and tr.im for when we need a short URL for Twitter. But, we don’t realize how many other options are out there which might be better. Today I found 7Les.com, a URL shortener with a nice calming blue style which is friendly to anyone, URL tracking features and so much more. I thought to myself well why is this not the most used URL shortening service? It should be it has the best stylesheet and the best tracking features. But really who is to believe that I am not just saying this?
I thought I would try tracking a URL, first you have to sign up to the site so that you can track your URL’s wherever you are you can track the clicks on your shortened link. The intelligent design of the site made it so easy for me to find out how to track clicks. Unlike other services if you don’t want the link anymore for any reason there is a simple “delete” button something that you might want to do for any reason. Also it was easy & simple when I was signing up for an account to track my URL’s.
Another thing I noticed was how short my URL became: 7les.com/a2 was one of the URL’s that I got. One of the shortest URL’s that I have ever got as a shortened URL. I thought this was great; it actually shortened the URL instead of what some sites do when they just make it longer. It’s a great URL Shortener and I would recommend it to all twitter users and others looking to shorten their URLs.
All in all, their intelligent design and great tracking features make it an easy choice for me. Next time I shorten an URL, it will be with 7Les.
