    Do short URLs reduce risk of the site money being marked as spam when blasting with Scrapebox?
    The webmaster marked as spam the specified url, they don't do it by landing on your site, right?

    Right, you can use shortening services. Problem with that though is if they go to the shortening service and then they shortening service disables your links.

    I'd recommend buying "throw away" domains and then 301 redirect them to your money site. That way you control the domains and benefit via a buffer domain that hasn't been killed yet. Then rinse and repeat once you notice the domains hitting "spam" filters.

    How often shortened links get disabled and what causes it? Spam? I never checked if any of my short links were disabled in the past...

    But what is the problem with getting reported? Use a registar who does not care (like namecheap) and a offshore hosting (you can find one in marketplace section right here in BHW) and it won't be relevant if they report you or not.
    Don't use shorteners, you cannot control that redirect so you will loss your backlinks over time, first because urls shorteners clean their lists often. Second because if they recive a spam compliant they just delete your URL without tell you.

    Yea blatant comment spam and a webmaster that goes on a vengeance can get them disabled as well as your account with the shortening service.

    you can also buy domains and start your own redirect service (which is not a bad idea at all)... and then you use your own domain (and other people will also use it) and if you get "tired" you can redirect ALL of them to wherever you want... you could even add a SKIMMING to the links so that something like 0.5% will go to somewhere you want (most likely no one will see this traffic leak, but you will benefit from it)

    not sure what the 301 direct is all about, but wouldnt it be easier just to have .info domains forwarded to your money sites url?
