    A few days ago .. buttercup opened a thread in here somewhere .. explaining a method that in fact most url shorteners use ... especialy tinyurl ( yeah F*CK YOU Tiny ! )

    the damn sob's were scraping my links like crazy !! and I was wondering why the f*ck the traffic isn't showing in my cpa account stats... anywayz...

    i've tested some thing on CL and i got a few replies like this:
    http://offurl.com/images/reply.JPG

    Note: i was advertising some weight loss product.

    fuck me... i've only sent about 100 e-mails and i got about 10 or so like those... mkay.. when i first received this message I didn't sweat it... i said ... aw f*ck .. they have to eat too.. but ... i've tried my url from my laptop with a different ip + browser ... and surprise... 3 attempts... all went to some teeth whitening offer...
    and i was promoting a weight loss product...

    anyway... i have started my own URL shortening service... finished it after 34 hours of busting my eyez & brains... I want to share it with BHW ...



    The only TOS i have is this: I WILL NOT SCREW YOUR LINKS UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WILL NOT CHEAT / DECEIVE MY BHW BRETHREN !!!!!!


    a few screenshots:

    --------------

    Later EDIT: oh ... i forgot ... please, when / if you sign-up put in your last name field BHW :D

    Later EDIT 2: silly me... i forgot the link too LMFAO ... http://www.OffURL.com

    A members area stats will be available soon, for you to check the hits to your links... i just need a lil rest now...
    If you feel like donating it would be much appreciated as it would help me with the costs of the hosting... lots & lots of bandwith :D:D


    Hope it helps you guys .... and .. oh yeah... F*CK YOU Tiny !!!


    cheers.

    No offense but how do we know you are not going to jack our links?

    I use my own URL shortener anyways, you can get the script online and set it up in minutes.

    oh geez... i was expecting this question actually :)))) i want to build a solid rep ... not screw it up... that's why in my post i'm telling u to put BHW in the last name field :D

    and + if any1 ever gets a suspicion i'll give them access to my mySQL database and there are the logs :)


    you are partialy hard ... u can get a script online, depdends what script though... most are hard to mod or completely useless... yes u can set it up in minutes... but that is a simple script ... i will be adding statistics + i'm thinking now of something for blanking / faking the refferer :D

    anywhere this week... but .. till then u could use the simple redirection system :)


    lol ... wait a few hours... the system is working smooth ... anyway .. give me your link ... i'll check it in the database for u to be sure it's there... but give it a while for the visitors to ramp in ... it's not instant u know :)


    btw ... the statistics u see on the index page ... is for all the network... not yours... i haven't implemented yet that thing... i'm encountering some issues in the code :(



    cheers.

    Never "ever" rely on a third party URL redirection service, big mistake especially if you depend on the links to bring revenue or traffic. Always set your own up you control.

    I was getting DMCA's every hour, letters from Banks, PayPal etc fraud departments because people were making phishing sites and mass mailing my short URL's. Listed on every spam blacklist on the planet because people sending +1 Million bulk mails with my link in it, death threats from site owners because my short URL got Xrumered 5k times across their forum lol.

    Heck i even had people shortening links to child porn with my URL's. :(

    I tried to keep it running, but it consumed so much of my time and caused so many headaches waking up to DMCA's and phishing letters from Bank of America, Visa.com, PayPal etc daily.

    It was doing +100 redirects per second in peak times because of the spam. Once they get popular, they are tuff to run. I didn't even advertise it, word just spread.
