When you share a website link, Stacker automatically creates a short version of the url. Stacker uses this short url to track the number of clicks for your link. By default, when you connect a social account the link shortening method is set to sta.cr.
If you wish to change the shortening method you do so by visiting the SETTINGS page under MORE... via the main menu at the top of the page. Click the Link Shortening option of the social account you want to update under the Manage Accounts section.
There are 3 different types of link shortening methods:
- sta.cr (recommended): Shortened links will have Click tracking. Per-post Click analysis is available on the REPORTS page
- Custom Short URL: Shortened links will have Click tracking. Per-post Click analysis is available on the REPORTS page
- No Shortening: URLs will not be auto shortened and Clicks on links will not be tracked
Alternatively you can click the Link Shortening option from the social account dropdown menu options on the Outbox page
