URL Shotgun Overview
Creator: Marc Ross
Launch Date: 2013-7-19
Product Type: Backlinking Software
URL Shotgun is a desktop software app that allows you to quickly create dozens of shortened, cloaked backlinks. Link shortening is a common internet marketing tactic, but shortening links using websites like tinyurl.com, adf.ly, goo.gl, and bitly.com takes a lot of time, especially if you want to make dozens of diverse links (creating dozens of the same link incurs SEO penalties from Google). URL Shotgun “blasts” the URL you want to shorten through multiple link-shortening websites and delivers you the results so you can begin the backlinking process.
Who is URL Shotgun For?
URL Shotgun can be used by any internet marketer in need of diverse backlinks (so, literally every internet marketer).
Shortened backlinks are Google friendly and pass just as much Google Juice to your pages as regular, non-shortened links. However, using just a single shortened URL to create multiple backlinks may raise some issues. It is not natural that a single shortened URL would be posted more than once or twice, and backlinking is all about making your site look like it has naturally gained momentum on the internet.
But why use shortened URLs in the first place? There are many advantages to cloacked URLs and shortened URLs. First, shortened URLs are perfect for marketing on Twitter, where your marketing message is already limited to 140 characters, not including however many characters your URL is. Second, cloaked URLs may bring visitors to your site who otherwise, had they known what site it was, would not have bothered clicking.
