    Hello, it's a pleasure to be a part of your community.

    My question is simple - Which link shortener is the best?

    I'm using bit.ly atm, and it's nice to keep track of the stats, but i can't help the feeling that bit.ly shortened links look dangerous and scammy. In my case i use a cashcrate ref# and the original ref link looks less malevolent IMHO.

    Discuss.

    There should be an option to customize your shortened link.. i.e bit.ly/CustomizeHere

    I really like tr.im, it's the shortest I've found, and does great tracking.

    Depends on what you're using it for. Samurai cloacker is good for sites. has.it works good too. You can make all kinds of words out of shortened link extensions.
