Social Media Optimization for TypePad

bit.ly Integrated in TypePad

Last week we added a cool new feature to TypePad: real-time bit.ly stats.

Now, when you share you new posts on Twitter, Facebook and FriendFeed, TypePad automatically shortens your post URLs using the bit.ly service. For example, a blog title like http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2009/09/real-time-web-pushing-your-blogs.html can be shortened to http://bit.ly/12cbYK so it can be easily shared on Twitter.

And now you can get statistics on how often those links are clicked directly from your TypePad blog overview.

To see how this feature works, sign in to the All New TypePad and check the stats for your blog. Below the traffic graph you’ll see a new link:

Bitly-link-typepad


Click the link and you’ll see a page of real-time clickthrough stats on posts that you’ve shared with your friends on Twitter, Facebook and FriendFeed. Click on the bit.ly URL for each of the entries for more detailed stats directly from bit.ly.

NOTE: If you haven't shared any posts on Twitter, Facebook or FriendFeed, then you won't see any bit.ly stats. If you're not sharing your posts with your friends, it's really easy to set up.  Check out the TypePad Knowledge Base for detailed instructions.

We need your feedback to make this feature better! Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
