Seller's Notes

URLCow.com is a free URL shortener service (a.k.a. URL or link redirection), that allows you to shorten your links. This is very convenient i.e. for Twitter,Facebook, other social media, SEO (Google etc), links within your outgoing emails.

We added some cool additional options. A custom URL (i.e. urlcow.com/yourword), an expiry date (so i.e. your URL expires after 3 months if this is what you wish), a password (if you need your short URL to be private) and total uses, f.e. your URL can be used a maximum of 10 times if you want this for some reason.

URL shortners have become extremely popular on the net with sites like tinyurl.com, bitly.com and many more. Currently we have over 69,000 active urls with 116,000 visits to them.

Site and api is ready to go just needs a strong traffic campaign behind it to push revenue to it's full potential. I will give the buyer my marketing plan on how to grow this into a goldmine which will involve investing in seo for the most part.

 

If you have any questions PM me.

 

Thanks.

How is this site monetized outside of adsense or is that the primary focus?
Thanks

@refercustomers Site is monetized with adsense and would fit some decent cpa offers.

@zaddy The looks fine on my end tested on all browsers try clearing your cookies.

@Networth Same clear your cookies.
I'll investigate this further if it's a geographical issue but I doubt it.
Thanks.

Is the Script multilingual?

@BrianUK The script I use will only be disclosed to the buyer as it can easily be replicated to non winning bidders. Design is not unique you are correct I marked by mistake can't change it back once bids are received. @united-promedia No we are not using multilingual great script though.
Thanks.

Guys if you cannot access the site try a web-based proxy server. If the server is unreliable and going down from time to time it doesn't matter as you will get to host the site yourself if you win.
Try the test video on youtube will show you the design etc.

@dggjobs Yes it seems to be a server issue my hosting provider said but I don't want to upgrade to a higher bandwith package seen asthough the site will be sold. I would recommend the site to be hosted on a reasonable size bandwith package. Thanks for the advise to everyone by the way.
Thanks.
