    I normally use .info but even they're getting more expensive these days.

    Are there any good free redirects I can use?

    I heard tinyurl is a bad idea.

    I see some still using bit.ly.


    Any better suggestions that won't cause my videos to get banned?

    I would suggest creating your own link shortener. There are many free open source shorteners out there. That way your links will never get deleted.

    Aren't they going to blacklist your shortener domain?

    I'm using twitter .

    First post your AFF link on twitter.

    Then copy the link through it, it will come out with T.co/XXXX

    Thanks. This strikes me as safer as there must be a lot of people using t.co.

    Does an odd looking url get as good a CTR as a domain name though? And if less, is it still acceptable?

    Any others guys? Come on, loads of you must make use common link shorteners/free domain redirects.

    I'm at the stage now where I've bought .com and .info but I'm now playing the high volume/low conversion game. So buying hundreds of domain names is not economical for me. Using a ton of free redirects that won't ever be used as a footprint for bans or won't be banned is what I want.

    Any more recommends?

    You need links to post in your video description right? Not for commenting?

    Except YouTube can just recognize that link in video descriptions and auto classify it as spam...then you own a domain that's blacklisted by YouTube...

    I use tinyurl and you guys are scaring me damn it! :(

    But anyways hopefully youtube doesn't care. SO far i have a few accounts up for about 20 days, finally figured it out but i hope they don't ban my accounts because of Tinyurl in the description.

    Use bit.ly or href - They still count views from popular link shorteners, you don't need to get fancy with it.
