Cligs allows users to take long urls and shorten them for use in twitter and other platforms. Unlike competitor, tinyURL, the company is taking one step forward and allows you to see the stats of the submitted links. Within your Cligs account, you can create an unlimited number of cligs, with an unlimited number of cligs pointing to the same destination URL. This means you can drop different cligs into different sites and watch their traffic evolve over time.
For example: two cligs pointing to the same destination can be used one in a forum and one on twitter and then the traffic from each one is tracked by Cligs.
Cligs also has a unique feature: geotargeting of the destination URL. This allows you to set up one short URL but each visitor being forwarded to a different destination depending on their geographical location. This is particularly userful for affiliate marketers.
