Shortened Trackable URL
Long Trackable URL
Was It Viewed allows you to easily track visits to a link. After providing a URL and your email, you will receive a trackable url that, when visited, redirects to the original link and sends an email notification to you. This has plenty of uses. The purpose of the site is to provide the public with a free, powerful tracking tool that provides a streamlined process with no hassle (basic features are free with no registration required). We extend services like goo.gl and bit.ly by streamlining the tracking straight to your inbox with information about the viewer ranging from IP Address and city location down to which browser and even which operating system they use.
Uses / Features
WasItViewed can be used in many different ways, and it's great for its simplicity. It can be used as a very powerful marketing tool, or as a simple way of knowing when to follow up with interviewers or admission officers.
Know if someone opened your linkThe most straight-forward use. If you send a reviewer or a reporter a link to your product for example, you can be notified when they open it.
Was my email readYou can know if your email was read very easily with this tool. Many big corporations track if you read their emails with expensive software, and now you can do so yourself without pulling out the big bucks, and with no need for your own webserver or an otherwise expensive marketing service. Simply generate a WasItViewed link that redirects to an image (maybe this invisible 1x1px image) and add the image to your email with your new trackable link as the source of the image. You'll get an email notification with the reader's ip address when they open the email and view the image. Hint: Check Don't notify me of views from my IP to avoid getting emails while you yourself are writing it
Email formsIf you want to provide a contact form on your website but don't want to program the mailing script and prefer a simple, elegant solution then this will work great for you. Just implement an html form with hidden WasItViewed fields. Need help? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
