Fallback Domain Redirect with UTM Parameters - YOURLS Plugin - Title Thumbnail

Last updated on October 25th, 2018

If you have a website, you probably use a link shortener or have considered getting one before. In case anyone isn’t familiar, basically it allows you to easily redirect short URLs to longer “complete” URLs on your site. There are many reasons to do this, like visitor traffic analytics, marketing, user experience or the constraints of social media. Thankfully, YOURLS makes creating your own custom URL shortener quick and painless! Nonetheless, registering a custom domain just for occasional link shortening can feel a bit wasteful. That’s why I created the ‘Fallback Domain Redirect with UTM’ Plugin for YOURLS, to give the domain a second purpose! Both are free and easy to use, so if you own a hosting plan, consider giving it a shot!

I’m going to take a bit of an unconventional stance here.  Currently, on anything that isn’t a top-of-the-line model or a race bike, I think motorcycle performance upgrades aren’t worth it.
