We updated Bitly's navigation menu in September, 2022!
If you're used to the old look, check out the changes.
Custom branded links (sometimes referred to as "custom links") include your custom domain at the beginning of the link as well as your own custom keywords in the back-half of the link.
A custom branded link does not start with bit.ly or end with a random string of auto-generated characters.
