It’s finally here, “The Best of Starcraft II 2014”!
I hope you enjoyed [link] in 2014! We hope to grow even more in 2015!
I want to thank our sponsor Cooler Master for supporting us through 2014! I doubt SC2HL would still exist without them! Check them out at: [link]
Protip: [I actually hate that word, forgive me]
Those links are hosted by bit.ly [as are many shortened links]
Add a "+" to [link]
It resolves to
which tells you the actual link and HOW MANY CLICKS IT GOT!
Now, 955 clicks [so far] to see the boyfriend arm pillow may not seem like a lot, but using that link sets a cookie that will credit collegehumor for anything else you buy on amazon for 24 hours.
So you go to laugh at the pillow, and then buy some LEGO a few hours later, and collegehumor gets a cut. It doesn't cost you extra, but why are they making money on it?
Just so you know for future scammy bit.ly links. You can put a "+" sign at the end of the URL to see where the link leads, as well as some stats for the link, like this: [link]
It's quite definitely scammy though, so be sure to report it to bit.ly's support: [link]
Bit.ly is usually rather responsive with scam links.
So is a 1D barcode or link shortening services (e.g [link]). QR codes provide a standard, electrically passive, physically compact means of transferring any text data from a fixed point to any compatible device without relying on a data network or a middleman with little fuss.
Hardly, though because a technology is misused doesn't make it inherently bad. It would help if people knew more about them and if Android/iOS actually implemented automatic detection of them out of the box like Windows Phone 7. I keep a card with my local WiFi settings on it so I don't need to type in my overly complex passkey when enrolling new devices.
Barcodes serve a purpose, I think this guy doesn't understand what purpose that is. Nor marketers for that matter, but that shouldn't condemn proper applications of QR codes.
NFC could be a practical replacement, but until it becomes this easy to generate one and the hardware becomes widespread it ain't gonna happen.
Isso aí! Estou aqui na Gazeta desde abril do ano passado e, em novembro, trouxemos o Manual do Usuário para dentro do jornal. Siga a dica do @Tetizeraz e assine a minha newsletter. Link direto: [link]
There is actually an official DIET TO PREVENT BAD TRIPS. Apparently it's gone through clinical trials with almost 95% effectivevness with even 2x 'heroic dose'. We live in a new age of science for sure.
My pleasure! If you are a total beginner, some of the videos won't really make a lot of sense. However, I can tell you that one of the best ways I went about learning After Effects was by just soaking up as many tutorials as humanly possible in the beginning.
You will be very surprised how you can learn something that has no real use to you, and then 5 years later you are on a project and your brain recalls some tidbit that saves your butt.
One of my next big project for the site is to develop an After Effects curriculum to get beginners up to speed really quickly, and to NOT FOCUS ON THE SOFTWARE SO DAMNED MUCH!!! My biggest gripe with Lynda.com and the like is that they tend to ignore basic design and animation principles. Without those, it doesn't matter how many tricks you know, your work won't be great.
I'd suggest checking out the videos, seeing what sticks, and filing the knowledge in your brain.
I would also HIGHLY recommend checking out my buddies at Mograph Mentor. If you can't swing the cost of a 4-years program like Ringling then Mentor is an excellent, excellent alternative.
As the other guy said just put a + in the URL. It doesn't really show that much, but it is usefull if your bit.ly would be to get shared around but I suspect all of the referals are from the youtubes. It shows the numbers, which kinda shows the interest and conversion rate of views->clicks (which are ofcourse not sales).
example for lazies from the latest WTF is video of shovelknight.
I have to agree with Dave Ramsey on this one. When making personal finance decisions you need to be thinking about what might happen and what the consequences might be. For instance, lets say the big boy job doesn't work out for no fault of your own. (Oh I don't know, your company turns out to be idiots and the go out of business a year from now.)
You would now face a situation in which you would no longer have the income but would still face the payment.
Do you know what happens when they repo your car? You pay the difference between what the car is worth and what you owe right? Nope. They sell your car at about 25% of its actual value and charge you the difference between their sales price and what you owe. So in your case you would end up with about $8000 in debt, no job and no transportation. Personal debt is the greatest threat to your financial stability. Besides the longer you pay on the car, the more of your hard earned money you put in someone else's pocket through the interest paid. Wouldn't you rather have that interest for yourself?
The traditional argument for investing is that you will earn more money through the investment than you are paying in interest on the car. This isn't always the case. So what happens if you lose your job a year from now and need to make your payments and the economy is way down? (perhaps that is why you would lose your job?) That would mean that your investments might be way down as well and you wouldn't have the money to pull out of the Roth to pay your car loan.
In this one I agree with Ramsey. Pay your debt off first. Then start on your retirement. Debt is a bigger threat to your financial stability. If you want to know more you should either take Ramsey's class online. ([link]) I also have a personal finance book which you might find helpful. ([link])
Even if they stole the idea from these Pokemon, who honestly gives a single fuck? It's not like they actually stole ideas, or any content other than loose interpretations of things in nature. Mechanics, and even type of game are entirely different.
Edit: Things like this are when taking concepts is going way too far: [link]
Direct link to maps.google.com for those that don't want to deal with redirect nonsense.
bit.ly/owMzp8 redirects to g.co/maps/863yh
g.co/maps/863yh redirects to the maps.google.com link above
On top of that, the linked URL doesn't even link to the same URL: the text with bit.ly is linked to bitly.com:
bit.ly/owMzp8 is linked to [link]
In case you or others reading this aren't aware, you can shorten ([link]) and/or hyperlink in reddit.
Copy your link into your preferred URL shortener. I used bitly.
Then type the word you want to use in the sentence between brackets and put the URL in between parentheses. Like this
[WORD] (LINK) but remove the space.
You can also make words ^smaller ^^and ^^^smaller. Just use these ^ with different frequencies at the beginning of the word. Italicize with one * on both sides. Bold with two ** on both sides. Or bold with italics with three *** on both sides.
Another very easy way which costs a whopping $0 is to take your Etsy URL and run it through Bitly to create a custom short URL for your instagram page. Pop that into your bio and then when people click your link the traffic is logged with some nice analytics.
OP you end up with something like this:
Your URL is basically useless unless it's for print.
Online you can mask the url Like this on Reddit, in anchor <a href="LINK GOES HERE TO MAKE TAGS THE LINK" > tags </a> for websites/forums, and social media often converts the link to a preview.
Also, you can always use Bitly
The easy way would be to just use bit.ly or Google Apps' tools for using your own domain. You just have to tell either of them the domain to use and then make a DNS record with your domain provider to refer it to them.
Here's a link for bit.ly, or Google Apps. I personally use both of them. Some find bit.ly's easier to use, but one thing I like about Google's is that you can use whatever word you want on each link. Like: yourdomain.com/AnyWord
Bit.ly lets you customize that too, but for reasons I don't understand it can't be a word that's used on any of bit.ly's other shortlinks, not just ones on your own domain. So good luck choosing something like common like yourdomain.com/obama
I'm not really sure what you mean. Maybe URL shorteners like Bitly?
Edit: I guess you meant Legitly.
Please don't use a link shortener. And if you do, provide a preview:
My June Birchboxes
Overall two great boxes, I got duplicates, but the products that were not duplicates made up for it. I will give one of the staniacs to my best friend and be able to use the rest of the samples, though I will have to test the tan towels on my legs first, I currently use St. Tropez, and two self tanners that have ingredients that will react with eachother can mean oompa loompa town.
What's your definition of "very long"? Here's one my wife sent me in May that still goes to the same place: [link]
EDIT: Just learned that you can add a + to the end of a bit.ly link to get stats on the link (i.e. [link]). 2 clicks on May 23, 44 clicks today and absolutely nothing in between :D
Haha, Shake Shack didn't make the cut actually. I feel like I'm going to get a lot of hate for saying that. I thought Shake Shack was okay...
Although Crispo looks promising, I'm reluctant to add pricey places on my list. I make exceptions for a few places if I can be convinced that there's something special I'm missing out on.
I wonder what they are doing here.
The link has been created yesterday, which is not that long ago, but it seems to be too long ago to send a unique one to every distinct phone number. See [link]
So I doubt they can use it to test if you are gullible enough to click random links.
Then it redirects to a domain that looks like cardstop, but isn't cardstop. Why? The link you see is from bit.ly. There's no need for that middle url to look like cardstop.
And then they redirect you to the real cardstop website.
I really don't get what they want to do here.
On Sunday the 30th she was jogging with two friends and she was run over by a car. It seemed like any other Sunday, but a man hit her and drove away. In Venezuela any health issue is a severe problem, and every medical situation is very critical here, especially when the accident is this traumatic.
She is in intensive care since Sunday with bone fractures including fractures in her head, multiple fractures in her spine, and she is in a very delicate condition. In Venezuela only a handful of private clinics have the materials and the people to deal with this kind of situation, and it is extremely expensive.
Idania has no health insurance, she lost it when the economy became dollarized and we could not assume the cost of it in dollars. Her life is in danger and we are doing everything possible to save her.
Translator's note: I am venezuelan, i can't verify if this is real but the situation in venezuela as describe by op is 100% accurate.
>(mais je ne sais pas à quel point ils obtiennent des informations)
Je crois que ce n'est pas si intrusif, mais selon bitly ils sont capable de rapporter 20+ data point ( Selon ce que j'ai pu voir rapidement: location of your visitors, organic shares, and more). Brefr, c'est pratique mais c'est pas un outil de propagande intense.. :P
Bonus, en ajoutant un + à la fin on vois quand il a été créé et la destination finale Ex. https://bitly.com/2P2hOKO+

[FULL EPISODE] WATCH !!! GAME OF THRONES SEASON 7 EPISODE 1 ONLINE
Alternate HD>> [link]
it’s likely the “home” that Daenerys Targaryen is returning to in the season’s first episode—and her starting point for retaking the Iron Throne of Westeros.
Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter.
The second episode also seems to put Daenerys front and center, while returning Jon Snow to the picture. Jon has dealt with plenty of revolts (including a Night’s
Watch uprising that killed him for a short while), but he’s now the King in the North, so the stakes are higher. He, the Lannisters, and Daenerys are also seemingly
headed for a three-way showdown.
The third episode’s synopsis seems to offer least of all in terms of substance, though the title is a play on the title of an executioner. Cersei managed to get
herself a crown at the end of season six, so that could mean either her or, less likely, Daenerys putting someone to the sword.
FF.Net has more concise URLs, however if you are after a human-friendly / "ease-of-use" type link, I would either post it to your own site/blog, or whirl up your own link shortener.
Common custom slugs are taken on the major link shortener providers, and while [link] allows you to use their service with your own domain name, it is an ass-backwards arrangement that I would not bother with in all honesty.
If you have a PHP server kicking around (basic hosting package can go for $2/month easily if you don't) I encourage you to take a look at YOURLS, which is a preconfigered package—or well, you can go my route, and make your own!
If you don't want to bother with all that 'fancy crap', your other option is to just create a URL redirect in the DNS records of your domain provider. You'll get mydomain.com/story redirecting to fanfiction.net/s/1234578/ when users enter the simple URL, and there ya go!
>mfw just as planned.
Funnily enough, there was an episode of ITEHATTSD where the Big E implied that Chris-Chan was one of the many disguises he wore throughout history. Apparently, we were supposed to pick up on the hidden messages of peace in the videos. I'll see if I can find the episode.
Did you know that you can just put a "+" behind any bit.ly link (like this) to be directed to an information page about the link instead of the actual link? It's an easy way to find out where the link leads without actually clicking it and thus avoiding the risk of malware.
I hear ya. It ain't me. It's happening automatically. If I knew how to stop it I would
Edit - what's happening is your posts automatically and immediately go to the spam filter. From there, a mod has to approve it (which We all have been doing) for anyone to see it. Thing is, if you post links early morning, late night or whenever a mod isn't looking no one is gonna see your stuff. Since your links are obviously time sensitive it sucks. If I find a fix I'll let you know. I'm looking into it. This is Reddit, not the mods, doing this apparently.
Edit. - it doesn't look good for bit.ly
Edit - best I could do is this. PM me personally and the other mods through mod mail when you post bit.ly and if we see your PM we'll instantly approve it. It's not a perfect system but it's all I got. I'm trying buddy.
And another Edit - this is written in a way that's over my head but does this link help you?
Even my post here was automatically sent to spam because of the above link.
You create an account here: [link]
And it'll create a short url for your download link like this one: [link] (this one just goes to this post)
You use the link you created (with the zippy address) as Buy link in SoundCloud, when you login into Bitly you'll see how many people have clicked that link.
That's the best you can do IMHO without buying a PRO account.
>It'll be distributed for free online as well as with mail-order releases.
As a free, added bonus, who wouldn't want this? If someone if taking the time to order an album, chances are they're the type of person who would love to have this in their hands, flipping through it.
Add a link bundle through Bitly with their website/social media, video or stand out live performance...
BTW, thanks for everything you do at [link] - much love!
You have a couple different options.
You can register your own domain and run an open source link shortner. I've used [link] in the past with great success.
You can use your custom domain with an established url shortner. Basically you'd be using a service like "Bit.ly" with your own custom domain. [link] They offer a free package that allows one custom domain.
If you paste bitchute links in reddit they get taken down, so just wrap them in a URL shortener.
1) Goto https://bitly.com/
2) Paste the bitchute link
3) Then copy the shortened link
Hi there - If things sounds too good to be true it usually is. Check out this article for how to avoid scams in the future: bitly.com/2zuoOMf. If you need assistance on your account reach out to us here: squ.re/cashhelp

A shortened URL has a string, called a key, after the domain. For example, [link] -- its key is EsusuFCRA. When you hit that link, Bitly looks up EsusuFCRA in a database, and that key is associated with a value -- in this case, the longer, original URL.
That URL is provided to your browser, and your browser is redirected to that page.
