What tools are folks using for URL shorteners?

What tool do you use to shorten URLs now that Google’s freebie is going away?
If you’re doing click analytics, does the tool you’re using make this easy?

I use Bitly, it has worked great for me and they have great API documentation

I built my own URL shortener on Bubble :smiley:

That’s ambitious. Did you bake UTM tags into it? How do you track analytics?

I built mine largely for my own purposes. But adding UTM parameters (to my knowledge), are simply defined URL parameters.

So, when the URL is loaded, you have a workflow that reads the UTM parameters, creates a new “view” event and records the read parameters. Then does a re-direct to the intended site.

So does Bubble have URL redirection, or did you do that through a service?
