Checking some things before you upload a list of links will help ensure they get processed and shortened properly.
- Check your primary email address in your profile settings to receive your file with short links.
- You must be an account administrator to check the status of uploads in Account settings.
Some common errors can be corrected by checking the file you're uploading.
- Make sure the columns in the file have the same names and order as the columns in the Bitly bulk upload template, which you can download by clicking the Create button and selecting Bulk import URLS from CSV.
- Each back-half must be unique and unused for each domain. For example, if you shorten your links using the bit.ly domain, it's very likely that a common back-half will be unavailable.
