    Hello BlackHatWorld. I just wanted to share a project I have been working on.

    It's basically a URL shortener that locks your urls with social share buttons.

    I wanted to share this because I feel it can be very useful. You can lock amazon affiliate links, discount codes, etc.

    You can try it out at urlocker.pw

    It works like any other url shortener. You just insert you link click lock and then copy and paste the link wherever you want.

    Please let me know what you think and how I can improve the service.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Thanks for the share but surely the person getting most benefit from this would be you?

    http://urlocker.pw/2nSNf

    Or will you be offering some kind of revenue share?

    I want to. I feel it's wrong for me to charge money to remove the social lockers and not pay the users.

    My budget is just very low right now and it can be pretty expensive to hire a programmer.
    If people actually purchase premium membership, i'll be able to hire a program using the money obviously to create that sort of feature.


    For now i'm just going to wait and see how it grows and hopefully i'll be able to pay for views later on though.


    I'm not sure how I would do it. I think it'd have to be a fixed amount of money per unique view. With websites like adfly they pay more for US views etc because advertisers are willing to pay more for it.

    But since this is just social lockers not ads I wouldn't be able to pay as much as those other programs.


    I have many ideas for the website though. For example yesterday I was reading a thread here on BHW on what shorteners people use and everyone said not to use bitly because anyone can put a + in front of your url and view your stats. So for my url shortener I want to give users an option to make stats private for a specific link.

    But again i'd need a programmer for that.

    So for now I just made certain stats only viewable by upgraded users.

    Hey guys I just wanted to say I purchased a second domain name since urlocker.pw might look a bit suspicious on social networks, users might not want to click on it when they see "locker". So our second domain is ilink.pw. Both domains will work, however each domain has its own separate database. This means you'll have to register to each website if you want to use both.

    Thank you!

    I just purchased a third domain iViral.pw

    This website is a little bit different.

    Instead of having; Tweet, FaceBook Like, and Google +1, iViral has; Tweet, FaceBook SHARE, and Google +1.

    I hope everyone here likes our service.

    interesting idea, though i think you might have more success with this if you made it into a wordpress plugin... a lot of users there that might need something like this.

    The biggest problem that it looks exactly the same as OnePress Social locker,unless you are the author of that WP plugin..might cause some problems.
