BetterLinks comes up with stunning features to create, shorten and analyze the performance of your important links. You can manage the settings of Betterlinks easily and directly from your dashboard. Follow this step by step guideline to manage settings of BetterLinks:
Step 1: Manage Settings Of BetterLinks #
Navigate to BetterLinks → Settings from your WordPress dashboard as shown below. You will be able to see the ‘General’ section from there.
From the General section, you can manage settings of link direction status, analytics data, redirect type, and more.
Let’s find out what each of the options is consists of in detail below:
Link Redirection Status #
If it’s in ‘Active’ mode, that means it will fetch the target URL from the .json file and redirect it. Otherwise, it will fetch directly from the database. If you clear the .json file from wp-content → uploads → betterlinks_uploads, you will find link direction status in deactivate mode. You have to activate that again for a faster response.
Fetch Analytics Data #
If it is in ‘Active’ mode, that means it will fetch analytics data within 1-hour interval. By clicking the ‘Refresh Stats’ button, your analytics data will instantly be updated.
Redirect Type #
From this section, you can set the redirection type primarily. Three types of redirections are now available: 301 (Permanent), 302 (Temporary), and 307 (Temporary).
Link Options #
From the link option, you can set the purpose of your created link. You can select multiple options from the available link options.
