Before we talk about Contest Review Lynk.my 2015, which I decided to participate (really?), let’s talk about Lynk.My first, shall we? Afterall, I only knew about this site recently while googling for something else. I got to give them credits for managing to persuade me (indirectly) to come out from semi-retirement and write for contest purposes. I thought I am already done with all those stuff.
But, for Lynk.my, I’ll it give another shot!
URL shortner service is not something new. It has been around decades long and I had used many services ranging from free to paid service. But, this does not keep these guys at Lynk.My away from creating another site that offers such service and, why not? The demand is still there and if they can come up with a little bit of invention that offers better value in service, people will definitely use your service. Plus, humans are normally very curious about something new.
I bet many of us started using Facebook or WhatsApp out of curiousity rather than initiative, right?
Anyway, there’s little information about its owner, apart from they are Malaysians and trading under the name of Hexatology Network. To be honest bro, you guys need to improve on this and let people know more about you. The more you reveal about yourselves, the more trust you gain from your customers and the more they will use your services. My 5-cents. 😀
Like other URL shortner services, the main reason for you to use Lynk.My is to replace your ugly long URL to a shorther and cute ones. For example:
You will find it really useful if you are an avid Twitter user like me. Why? because Twitter, as many people know, limits the number of characters that you can type on your tweet.
*though I’m having a bit problem using it on twitter. Hmm… help please
If you are the ‘kepoh‘ type and like to do story-telling, then I suggest you use Facebook lah.
Otherwise, keep your postings short and straight forward. Plus, shorten your link with Lynk.My!

Of course, the selling point of this service is it can help you make money passively. Go to their website (click Here) and register as a publisher. For every click that is generated by a user on the advertiser link, you will get credited in the form of UV.

Plus, if you have a business and you wish to promote it, you can also register as an advertiser.
Other than that, this website also offers other tools such as:
If you have a website with 100’s or 1000’s of links you want to change over to Lynk then you may use this script. Simply copy & paste the code in your Lynk.My account on to your webpage or blog and the links will be updated automatically – it’s that simple!
A small but powerful script that will help you quickly shorten URLs right from that page without having to leave the page and without the need to copy & paste the link!
All you need to do is drag the link below onto your toolbar (or bookmarks). When you want to shorten the URL of the page you’re on, just click on the bookmark and a new tab/window will open presenting you with the page link ready for your click for an instruction!
Not bad, don’t you think so?
Ok end of the review.
