A .TUBE® domain name will enable you to brand the entire distribution network that will deliver your content via the web. Every .TUBE® domain name includes a URL shortening and redirection tool that is essential for all businesses with an online video presence. URL shortens and URL redirects can help build customer trust and satisfaction, provide valuable marketing analytics, and maintain and improve search engine optimization. And most importantly, they will help you build your brand.
What is a URL Shortened?
A URL shortening is a tool, typically web based, that’s used to shorten a link using a redirect. It takes your original link and replaces it with a shorter link. You can then publish the shortened link on social media, blogs and other web properties. When a user clicks it, he or she will be redirected to your original link.
Large corporations and big brands are quickly moving towards link management for distributing their content. Every business that is interested in emphasizing their brand and serving their customers must use intelligent short links to direct them to the updated, relevant content they are looking for. Branded short links build trust, they don’t look spammy or untrustworthy as is the case with a random links with unrelated characters, created in free platforms such as Bit.ly.
The Impact on SEO
Contrary to popular belief, using a URL shortening won’t harm your SEO efforts, just the opposite, if you manage your short links effectively, your content’s SEO rankings are sure to increase. This is because when you redirect a short link to your content, the SEO link power moves to your target URL, in other words, when a search engine encounters a shortened link, the search engine will award the page to which it redirects with all the link equity. That is why Links.TUBE® does not offer the possibility of masking URLs which creates duplicates which are penalized by Google, you can create short links using your .TUBE® domain with the confidence that it can only strengthen your rankings.
Short links are also useful for instance if you are changing the location of web pages. If you’re moving a web page to a different location on your website, you can use the short link to retain the page’s search rankings. Also, if you have hundreds of videos on your YouTube channel, the older ones will probably be harder to find unless you associate them to a short link. In that instance, If you’re building links to a video buried several layers deep on your channel, using a shorten URL will result in more traffic.
