Bitly isn’t specifically designed for users to create multiple Bitlinks for a single long URL, unless you have the campaigns feature. The campaigns feature is only available for our paid customers. For our free users that don’t have campaigns, we do have a Bitly trick that will help you out!
To create multiple Bitlinks for a single website, follow these steps:
1) Start by adding a hashtag to the end of the the long URL in excel or a word processor (not in the bitly.com shorten box) - for example:
2) Next, add a different unique identifying code to the end of the URL for each share- for example:
3) Now, you can shorten these new links using Bitly and a unique bitlink will be generated for each separate link.
- Each of these Bitlinks will lead to the original URL, but you will be able to track them separately.
As previously mentioned the formal tool for this feature is called OneView, which you can access by upgrading to Bitly Enterprise. When creating campaigns in OneView you will be allowed to automatically generate unique links for each channel (such as Facebook or Twitter), stack the results against one another in one view, and drastically increase the level of insight you have into your links' data.
