Great New Way to Shorten, Analyze and Promote Links with Su.pr

suprpicJust about everyone in the social networking space uses URL shortening applications.  Now, I know there are tons of sites out there that do this, but this one is a true gem.

Su.pr is a great new application by StumbleUpon (someone who we already know, love and trust) where you can shorten, track and promote your URL’s.  Su.pr is tied to StumbleUpon and your users have to capability to rate and review your posted links.  It also has a time saving feature allowing you to schedule your posts for a later time and date for Facebook and Twitter.  It encumbers many tools that normally multiple sites are needed to accomplish the same results.

You can see the functionality of the interface here: http://su.pr/9rtTZk.

  • Hey Bradley,

    Thanks for sharing this information. I will scope it out.

    I have found that a thumbs-up at SU generates enormous traffic. I had a particular guitar lesson at my guitar instruction site receive over 90,000 hits in 3 days last year from 4 thumbs-up reviews. To this day, I still get traffic from that one event. Twitter is interesting, but because SU is based on content preference, it is ultimately much more powerful, IMHO.

    Cheers,

    Gil

    • Thank for sharing Gil. This new application is great and I love that it is tied to SU. I have not done much with SU, but now with your mention I will dive into it. Any tips you can give any of us SU rookies?

      • Hey Bradley,

        Not sure what tips to give other than this:

        1) Make sure you have 'quality' content and that your site looks good.

        2) Find some friends who are willing to stumble your pages. By Stumble, I mean to give them a thumbs up IN the appropriate category AND write a short review (1 sentence is fine).

        Bradley, I am actually going to do a marketing experiment that hopes to determine the ratio of return on the time invested in twitter vs facebook vs stumbleupon. I'm not ready to do this yet. I need to define it first and then I need 10 people to commit a 'tiny' bit of time. I predict SU will blow the other 2 away (per capita).

        In the interim, if you would like me to stumble a few of your articles and you would do the same for me, we could gauge the results in our stats. Leme know :- )
        Cheers,

  • Hey Brad, thanks for the Su.pr tip! I went onto their website to get started, but I guess they're beta testing it or something, so I have to wait to get an invitation code. Does this sound right? Or am I doing something wrong?
