    I posted a shortened link. Am I allowed to do that? I ask because I do not want to violate any rules here. Here is the shortened link. It links to a alertpay registration page

    The blog I need help with is


    I’d recommend removing any of those links from posts.



    As @auxclass mentions it’s the destination URL that really matters, but in many cases spammers use or other services to mask the links they’re adding.

    If you’re wanting to link to a site I would link to the full URL. The clicks will still be tracked in your site stats so you’ll get analytics from it.

    Best of all the destination URL is apparent to any visitor to your site because you’re sending them directly there, not routing them through a third party service.
