LinkScrub takes the guessing games out of manually trimming links, allowing you to quickly scrub any link from all tracking and affiliate codes so you can go incognito, and share links, not poems. While web tracking is important as it allows websites to track advertising, affiliate revenue, and optimize content based on how engaging their content is, not everybody wants to be tracked to the point where the website will know the users past web history, nor do they want to share unnecessarily long links when they find an interesting article.
How many times have you gone to share an interesting article with a friend only to find that the link you wanted to send was super long. You can thank all the services and websites that append a ton of extra junk to URLs so they can have a better understanding of how you visited the site, what you’ve looked at, and where you’re going. Additionally, you should remove tracking parameters from your links if you run an affiliate website, so you get the commission and not someone else.
Urchin Tracking Module (UTM) parameters are five variants of URL parameters used by marketers to track the effectiveness of online marketing campaigns across traffic sources and publishing media. The UTM parameters in a URL identify the campaign that refers traffic to a specific website, and can let the content creator know things like how long you spent on the website, or which keywords brought you to a specific page, and much more. The parameters can be parsed by analytics tools and used to populate reports. Here is an example URL, UTM parameters highlighted:
Instead of manually removing UTM parameters and risking breaking the link, LinkScrub’s AI algorithm does this perfectly and fast! Just paste a copied link into the field, and click scrub. That’s all there is to it!
