Many people use url shortening tools not realising they are not very well liked by both search engines and users. I have always done my own using php and here is exactly how to do it for those who are unsure how to create their own short urls using php

make a file in notepad and name it for example "join.php"

enter the code on this page http://earnbucksfree.com/shorturls.htm

and save

simply replace username with your own username and it will redirect all users who visit www.yoursite.com/join.php to p2s as your referral

just looked it up so weebly users can do it too (i got a unpublished error when i tried the php file and uploading it) though it requires a new page...

make a html thing only and put ehhh seems to have been deleted after post.. so nvm

the code can b found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/META_refresh



:)

sorry if codes aren't allowed here ill take it down if its not.. dont use the forums to much but it is a nice thing to know =]


DivenPatel, it redirects the user clicking on the link without saying points2shop.com/ref?... w/e it is lol so you can make it look like something else and not a ref link and without shortening the link using something like goo.gl
