    Does anyone know a URL Shortener where you can add a URL and it can give you more than one shortend link for it?

    I have been using bit.ly but it can only give me one shortened link per URL. If I ask bit.ly to shorten the same link again it will give me the same shortened link as before! :yell:

    I think most URL shorteners are like that, since they're using a finite number of characters, it makes sense to cut out duplicate content.

    for instance the following url shorteners have customization feature: tinyurl, cli.gs, snipurl and i bet you can find even more

    however i'm not sure, if you can create more than one shortened url with them for the same long url, test them and see for yourself

    goo.gl can do that, how much different links you want plus you have statistic of visits. And in tez.co you can change random/45ygts to Optional custom word, like tez.co/yourword, very good to show people what is link about.

    I can't use Google as they block a lot of CPA URL's.

    I will take a look at the other one thanks.

    The reason I need them to be unique is because the website I am advertising my CPA links on are banning all account using the same web address. So I need each short URL to be unique so they can't trace it.

    Adfly > Tinyurl > Adfly > Tinyurl

    you don't have to use adfly, i thought tinyurl can shorten all urls.

    Add a new parameter with dead characters to the end of the url:

    Code:
    http://mydomain.com/redirect.php?offid=334
    
    Would then become:
    
    http://mydomain.com/redirect.php?offid=334&new=1
    From there you can just keep changing the url slightly to produce a new one.

    If you send a random variable with a common name (ie. new, account, status, etc.) you risk actually changing something that's not meant to be changed, and it could backfire... I use random short names, ie.
    Code:
    url.com/something.php?id=239&aplinn=something
    or better yet, a harmless # where accepted, ie.
    Code:
     url.com/something.php?id=239#something

    If you are directly shortening your cpa offer, you could just add a tracking id and change it each time for a unique bitly link.

    I did an experiment using adcendmedia and bitly and got a unique shortened link for each sub id by just adding a single number.

    I think Adfly might allow that as long as you customize the name of the link.
