How do I shorten a link?

To shorten a link while signed in, paste the long URL into "Paste a link here..." in the top right corner of the site. Your shortlink will immediately appear in the bitly save pop-up, and at the top of your bitmarks list.

Need the shortlink to one of your existing Bitly links? Head to your bitmarks list, located under the 'Your Stuff' tab when signed in. You will also see the click counts on your Bitly link and the option to customize the link by clicking on the pencil.
