Get rid of risky and toxic outbound links
Turn your outbound links into a website growth factor
Sur.ly alters the outbound links on your site so that visitors can get to external target pages without leaving your domain.
Surely the simplest tool to:
Cope with fake users signing up for your site to get backlinks
Sur.ly can nullify all efforts of spammers trying to create fake profiles on a public site to get a free link and thus steal some link juice from it.
Minimize the risk of an algorithmic Google penalty
Sur.ly turns any risky or toxic outbound links within user-generated content into safe and SEO-friendly internal links.
Keep users within your domain longer to reduce the bounce rate
Sur.ly allows users to view the external pages while staying within your domain as long as possible and thus helps you keep the bounce rate in check.
Recapture users leaving via outbound links
Sur.ly helps you to attract users back to your site with the headlines and pics from your articles listed on a clickable panel at the top of every external page.
Protect users after they follow the outbound links
Sur.ly provides users with a toolbar showing an up-to-date safety status of every website they visit via your links and warns about detected threats.
Keep your traffic data private and secure
Confidentiality is the key to success. With Sur.ly you can keep all the external traffic stats to yourself by relying upon your subdomain as a safety buffer.
Increase your brand awareness
You can customize Sur.ly toolbar to fit your website’s visual design and branding.
Integrate with the web analytics service
Integrate Sur.ly with Google Analytics to track user behaviour after they leave your site.
Use with your favourite CMS
Sur.ly plugin is free and available for any content management system of your choice.
Set up a subdomain to make the most effective use of Sur.ly
Visitors can leave a site quickly via the outbound links and never return.
With Sur.ly + subdomain
Sur.ly replaces the outbound links (except for whitelisted links of your choice) with the links leading to your subdomain, so when users follow these links, they will see the external target pages while technically staying within your domain.
Your users will love Sur.ly
Sur.ly is simple and efficient when it comes to protection of your visitors from unsolicited or unsafe links. It accompanies, informs and protects users when they follow outbound links, so they can never bump into an adult or malware-infected content. Owing to responsive design, it perfectly fits any mobile or desktop screen size. Quick social sharing options are also included.
Sur.ly is free
No ads or hidden costs
No credit card required
No strings attached: unlimited and ready to go! Set up a subdomain, install Sur.ly plugin and get all the benefits right away, with no trial period, limitations or other marketing tricks. Also, we are glad to offer the Premier Support as a fast-track service option.
Sur.ly plugin is available for all major CMSs and forum software,
or as SDK for a language of your choice:
“Spambots create fake albums on our photo sharing platform to get free backlinks...”
Sur.ly is a perfect solution to prevent passing a vote of recommendation (so called link juice) from your project to some shady external sites via outbound links added by spammers. Sur.ly can turn such outbound links into internal links leading to your safe subdomain - in such a way no link juice is flowed to external sites (except for the whitelisted friendly domains) and spammers cannot benefit from it anymore.
In other words, Sur.ly helps web projects to avoid unsolicited links to irrelevant or low-quality sites, especially posted within user-generated content, and thus stay reputed and loveable in the eyes of almighty Google, with a lesser risk of an algorithmic penalty or other negative outcome.
“Users exit our classified ads portal once they find a service they needed and follow its link, but we would like them to return and stay longer...”
Sur.ly provides a few effective options to recapture visitors and keep them on your site longer to decrease the bounce rate. When a visitor clicks a link (replaced by Sur.ly) and opens an external target page, he or she still stays within your domain technically, while being able to seamlessly browse another website.
Those third-party sites still can receive and appreciate the referral traffic coming from your pages as usual. At the same time, Sur.ly provides a toolbar that accompanies users all the time while they browse the external sources - it displays your website’s latest headlines, text snippets and pics, and thus prompts visitors to return for more interesting stuff.
“Our forum was penalized by Google because some user-generated links suddenly turned toxic, as the target page got hijacked and became unsafe...”
With the help of Sur.ly it’s much easier to keep a site safe and reputable, especially if it contains a lot of user-generated content - comments, forum posts, shared links, etc. Sur.ly can beat all the risks coming from risky or unattended outbound links within a user-contributed content, so neither of those links can suddenly turn into a SEO nightmare.
Even if a link becomes unsafe, Sur.ly will prevent spreading its toxic impact upon the whole site. Moreover, visitors will also stay safe, as Sur.ly detects any threat or unsafe content (adult, malware, etc) and prevents users from reaching it without a warning and making a conscious choice.
