There are many free link shortening services on the market today, and many even offer additional free services.

So what makes Nip.yt different ?

Free Version (Registered Users)

Custom Links

Why settle for boring links like nip.yt/Az7q4B when you could have nip.yt/MySpiffyBrand ? Nip.yt offers custom links for free.

Conversion Tracking

Nip.yt tells you what percentage of visitors to your sales page result in a sale. This is vital information, required by every online business to manage online marketing and sales efforts.

How does it work? When you create a short url, Nip.yt will provide you with a tracking pixel for each of your conversion pages. This tracking pixel will forward information to Nip.yt each time the page is viewed, which only happens when a sale is made. This information is aggregated in the charts.

Split Testing

Nip.yt Free includes straight A/B split testing. Practically speaking this means that one short link is redirected alternately to each of two landing pages that you specify. Conversion tracking is maintained for both pages so you can constantly see which of the two is outperforming the other.

Real Time Tracking

The tracking database is maintained in real time so you don’t have to wait for an update before you can view your stats.

Link Cloaking

Protect your affiliate commissions with Nip.yt’s robust cloaking feature. We hide your affiliate link from plain view. In the screen shot below you can see the url bar contains a Nip.yt address whereas the page is from Wikipedia. You cannot see the url in the page source. Only a visitor with advanced technical networking skills would be able to discover your link.

Geo Location Reporting

Know where your sales are coming from geographically.

Referrer Domain Reporting

Links get shared, so your traffic will not necessarily come from where you expect Nip.yt lets you see all domains directing traffic to your site.

Pro Version

All of the above are offered for free. But for a modest monthly fee, Nip.yt will soon be offering more:

User’s Own Domains

The pro version will allow you to use your own domain, for example http://foo.co/Promo instead of http://nip.yt/Promo.

Enhanced Geo Location Reporting

Display Sales Volume, Cost of Sales, Sales Net of CPC and Conversion Rate on a colour-coded map.

Sales Funnel Tracking

Implement multiple tracking pixels per target url to track your upsells and downsells. View aggregate data in one easy-to-understand chart.

Multivariate Testing

Redirect your short link to any number of landing pages, and keep tabs on the conversion rate of each one in real time.

Device and OS Reporting

Follow your traffic based on device type (desktop, tablet, mobile) and OS. Internet usage is changing quickly and this information is vital to the online business wanting to keep pace.

Mobile Deep Linking

For a mobile user, being redirected to their FaceBook or Twitter app instead of to a web page can make the difference between a sign-up and just another visitor. Mobile deep linking does this transparently.

User Defined Channels

Although it is possible to gather a great deal of information automatically when a visitor clicks on one of your links, it is sometimes necessary to define a channel yourself. For example you may have an email campaign. If the recipient of the email clicks on a link in gmail.com we will know this. But if they click on the link inside a desktop email client, the click will be interpreted as coming from the dark web. Nip.yt lets you define channels and attach them to links so you can aggregate all clicks from a given channel regardless which link the user clicked or where it came from.

Manage Links by Campaign

Group your links according to your own marketing plans. Then you may aggregate data for your entire account, on a campaign-by-campaign basis or for a single link.

Drill Down

When data mining it is vital to have the tools to aggregate data according to the realities that the data represent. You may know that page A outperforms page B. But does it in Europe as well as North America ? On Sunday as well as other days ? On mobiles as well as on the desktop ? Nip.yt Pro lets you ask the toughest questions and get accurate answers.
