Redirection Options

Premium URL Shortener offers an advanced array of options to filter & optimize your traffic with the same short link.

Geo Targeting (States & Country)You can define a different url for different countries and states. For example, if you want to target people in New York, USA, you can define a different link for this group and all others will be redirected to the main url.

Device TargetingSimilar to the Geo Targeting, the device targeting allows you to target specific devices like different operating systems or mobile phones.

Language Targeting NewLanguage Targeting works in the same way as the previous options however it will redirect users based on their browser language.

Note At the moment there is a certain priority for these features. Language  Device  Geo. For example if you define both a Geo Targeting for New York to and a Language Targeting for English to then the language targeting will be prioritized so users from New York with English set as their browser language will be redirected to

Meta TagsYou can customize the meta tags for any long url. If you are using the Direct method, the custom meta tag change will be triggered if and only if you upload a custom meta image. For other redirection types, it will updated right away.

PixelsYou can assign custom Pixels for each short link. These pixels will be triggered upon redirection. Due to the nature of these pixels, a custom intermediary page is required so users will be waiting for 2 seconds before getting redirected to the target website.

Parameters & UTM BuilderYou can define custom parameters and UTM for each short link. These custom parameters will be added automatically to the long link. For example if you shorten and you set utm_source = email when a user clicks on the short link, the final url will become

Dynamic Parameters/Parameter ForwarderThe script includes a dynamic parameter feature where it will automatically forward parameters to the final url. For example if you shorten and you get, you can assign parameters like and the it will be forwarded to as

 Redirection Types

Premium URL Shortener offers 5 types of the redirection that you can use. Each of them are explained below.

Direct RedirectionA direct redirection method redirects the user without any intermediate page. This is done via the server redirect. When sharing the link having a direct method, crawlers will fetch directly the target page. When using a pixel with direct method, a page is shown briefly before redirection and it is required for the pixel to work.

Frame RedirectionThe frame redirection method is useful when you want to cloak a website like an affiliate page. It will show bar at the top with the site information, an ad slot and some buttons to share or close the frame.

Note that some websites do not work with this method because of a security rule that forces browsers to hinder iframes.

Splash RedirectionThe splash page is an intermediate page very useful to give the user a preview of the page they are about to be redirected. It serves as a measure of protection and gives the user some time to react and decide whether they want to continue or not.

Custom Splash RedirectionThe custom splash redirect is a premium feature that allows customers to create their own promotional page and associate it to a short link. A user going through the custom splash page will see a promotional page briefly before being redirected.

Overlay RedirectionThe overlay feature is a cool feature that allows you to use dynamic lead widgets. It uses the same principal as the frame method but without the top bar. Instead it injects some cool widgets like a popup message, contact form and a poll.
