    Okay is it just me or did all of my direct clickable links just get wiped out on YA?
    This was an autopilot program developed a couple years back and noticed a big drop in traffic in last 30 days.

    here are my findings:

    all tinyurls were burned, not deleted but non-clickable | naked if you will...
    all of my other urlshortened links...even goog shorts are now naked as well.

    I see plenty of other clickable links up and running for authority sites and normal non spammy sites etc.
    ANyone else see this happen to them in the last few months or recently? Did they ban all shortened links?


    hmmmmm... this will be fun to figure out and revise...

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I read the other thread where you figured this out. Good work answering this before all the spammers get on here opening 100 threads a day asking why they can't post links any more.

    I bet most did not even realize the difference yet.
