Learn how and which redirection type you need to select/use for your shortened links.


The term redirect means URL forwarding. It is a mechanism in the World Wide Web (WWW) that directs users and search engines from one URL (web address) to a different one (destination). 

For example, If you click on a shortened or non-shortened link, and it directs you to another destination, it is called a redirect.

Now we have 3 redirection types at Linko.

  • Direct
  • Splash
  • Link Cloaking - Link Masking

To learn more about each one of these redirection types with examples, please refer to this guide - What are redirection types?
