Make it a Perfect Link or it Sinks!

Many of you are on Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, and other social sites and are taking advantage of being able to broadcast your business. Personally, I take great pride whenever I see any of your business posts, especially when they are creative and informative, and are catchy enough to spark potential interest.

However, what you may not know is that you are not posting ‘perfect links’ back to your website. By that I mean it is important that when you post the website address you want people to click/visit, you want to make sure that when they click, it actually takes them right to the website. You don’t want the reader to have to ‘cut and paste’ the website—they won’t! 

*How to Make it a ‘Perfect’ Link:—-

Again, that means that if someone were to ‘click’ on it, it would take them directly to that website or webpage without them having to retype it into their browser—you don’t want them to have to ‘cut and paste’ it into their browser in order to view it!

To make it a perfect link, you must type in the entire address including the “http;//”
For instance: 
Not just “”

It becomes a ‘perfect link’ when the entire address ( appears.
Your computer, or your smart phone (like an iPhone, Blackberry, etc) will then automatically make it a ‘link’ for you.

TIP to make it easier than typing:
—in a separate browser window, go to the web address you want to post
—highlight the entire address in the browser, then ‘copy’ it.
—then you ‘paste’ it into whatever you were typing, that way, you are sure that it is typed correctly as a perfect link.

Note: most email programs now turn your typing into perfect links if you type (or paste) in the entire web address—especially important when you are creating great viral signatures for your email.

Make sure your link are ‘perfect’ in
*your emails
*social site postings (like on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc)
*any profile information on Facebook or other social sites
*your comments to blogs, blogging, anything where you would want the readers to ‘check out’ the website or the webpage you just typed in.

*Is the website address way too long?

Shorten the website address (URL) by going to:

On there, just type or paste in the web address, and it will give you a shortened version. It’s free!
