    point the url to a page that redirects to the url you want it to go to.

    then just remove the redirect afterwards when you dont want the link to work anymore.

    thats one way to do it

    but i feel like i'm missing something here

    why would all these sites not give us something so simple as to DELETE the tiny URL.

    You would think they would just 301 to their homepage and garner the link juice.

    what would they have to lose by creating this delete option....

    well what i ended up doing was creating a deadmylink link.

    then, i thought deadlink was an ugly URL

    so i pointed a Goo.gl link to the deadlink.

    haha

    god this sure seems like overkill for such a simple obvious feature...

    I use goo.gl. Keeps track of clicks and most people see it as google anyways with a quick glance.
