No More Pretty Links?
So, do you use Pretty Links?
I personally don't use it and never have done.
However, for those who do use Pretty Links, you may be interested to learn it is no longer recommended by Kyle.
In fact, he is even going to remove all references to it from the training.
I managed to catch him in Live Chat and asked him why.
Here is his exact response.
"Because it is not really necessary to cloak links, it can add another level of tracking, but you are adding another layer of technology that could potentially go wrong.
I am going to be removing this from the training. It can make the links look cleaner, and can offer a layer of tracking on the click-throughs. But it is definitely not needed."
So, there you have it, and of course it is up to you to do what you consider the best way in moving forward with your website.
I am not suggesting you rush to remove Pretty Links, I just thought you may be interested in Kyle's point of view.
