Using Bit.ly to shorten, share and track links.

Bit.ly

Bit.ly

Bit.ly is a way to do many things that normal twitter won’t allow.  http://www.Bit.ly   shortens your long URLs on Twitter but also shares links so each time you point to that page it is the same Bit.ly link code. I also like to check and see hits and data that the website provides on twitter tweets and what type of response or clicks I got.

I use it from tweetdeck, and after it shortens the link and it is twittered, I can go back and look at the hits, what country, time and many other tracking data that they provide for free.  It gives me a real gage as to what the results are of each tweet.

Also if you do not want others to see your metrics you have to turn the open source off, if not everyone can see how many hits you get.

Tweetbeep adds alerts by email to track conversations.

I have learned to love Twitter, and now have found the TweetBeep http://www.tweetbeep.com  app that allows free Twitter alerts to your email.
It says it will keep track of conversations that mentions you, your products, your company, or anything you want to track and does it in hourly updates! It even says it can even keep track of who’s tweeting your website or blog, even  when they use a shortened URL (like bit.ly or tinyurl.com).

CMOs are always looking for ways to maintain a good to excellent on-line reputation management.  This Tweetbeep app allows for the catching all @replies and @mentions, other thingslike a finding job or gaining new networking opportunities.  I also think it would work great for keeping up on your favorite sport, news or hobby.
