After you've connected your Bitly account to WordPress, you'll be able to shorten links to your posts and pages.
To create a short link:
- After publishing a page or post, edit the page and click Settings
- Scroll down and click the Bitly plugin
- Click Get Shortlink
- If you'd like, you can edit the back-half, then click OK
The link will be saved to your Bitly account, and you’ll be able to view the number of clicks it receives right within the plugin in the post’s Settings panel.
To view a link’s recent click data:
Click metrics for a short link will appear in the same settings as above for each published post or page.
The displayed data includes the number of clicks today, the total number clicks over time, and a graph of the number of clicks over the last 7 days.
