    No don't use any affiliate link directly with bit.ly, they usually catch that it's an affiliate link and they pop up a warning page like this whenever someone visits it.

    Instead, use your own domain to redirect to your affiliate link THEN you can shorten your domain name. It doesn't have to be a paid domain, you can use a service like smartdots.com

    you spent a whole day creating links and you couldn't spend one second to check only one link to see if it's working? You are lucky you came across this thread I suppose :p

    Try out tinyurl.

    I just checked ****** and it seems cool but they have tons of restrictions on links.
