BlipTo.com is a cloud-based SaaS platform, located in the EU. Your data is securely stored on our cloud servers, and you can access it from any location or device, 24/7.

Interface: Our product features a modern multi-device, responsive interface. You can use your account with any device, including desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

BlipTo is a hop-based link tracking and control system. It is used an intermediate redirect:

Original source => BlipTo => Your website.

Note: Original traffic source can be a paid ads platform, another website, a social media account etc.

Once logged in, within your account you can add Target URLs and URL rotators (aka Hops). An Entry URL is generated and shortened for each group. You can share the Hop URL on social media or place it on an ads network website.

When you direct traffic inbound to BlipTo via the Entry URL, it will be automatically redirected to your Target URLs. However all these requests will be firstly logged while in transit. Statistics will then be made available via your user panel.

There can be several, but let's mention the most important ones:

  • Free PPC traffic tracker for any paid ads platform (such as Google Ads, Facebook Ads, Bing etc.). Advertisers need to accurately track PPC traffic. In some cases, not all paid traffic reaches destination site.

    Problem: Not all PPC traffic reaches your site, and you don't know why. While a certain percentage is normal (natural churn; technical reasons), if there are large discrepancies, you need fi find out where the problem lies.

    Solution: BlipTo can track traffic accurately. It can also tell you where the problem relies if there is a significant traffic loss. It might be either in your traffic source (ad platform, paid ads, third party referral site) or, maybe, even on your own site. By comparing the clicks that transited BlipTo with both the source of traffic and your site's analytics, you can determine where the problem is.

    Important note: Due to the way it works (intermediate redirect), BlipTo can detect even clicks that will not be detected by your everyday tracker or analytics package. We can also detect and control certain bots. This is a major advantage when using BlipTo.

  • Free Social Media Link tracker / Click Tracker. In many cases, paid traffic does not reach destination site.

    Problem: It might be difficult to track social media links/clicks. Each platform has its own interface and using multiple platforms can be a headache. Furthermore, sometimes you want to send SM traffic to multiple pages and see the effect (known as A/B testing). Sometimes traffic is comprised of bots; and you don't know about it.

    Solution: BlipTo can be used with any multiple social media sites and will track clicks accurately. You can track multiple sources, as many as you want. Furthermore, you can detect bots and adjust your traffic statistics to discount them.

  • General Traffic Tracker / Refferal Traffic tracker for visitors coming from third party sites. You can use this system to test referrals, paid ads traffic or social media traffic, and see how much of the original traffic was actually sent your way.

    Problem: Not all traffic is detected with normal analytics or statistics systems. Most of these systems use JS-based scripts and additional requests from the code inserted in your site. This kind of setup is normal; but a result, traffic stats are often lost. You are often left wondering why out of 100 paid clicks, only 50 clicks actually seem to have reached your site.

    Solution: BlipTo will detect most traffic requests sent towards your website (except the few lost by DNS or network errors). It will also detect bot traffic, and browsers without Javascript enabled. The traffic will still continue towards your site normally but it is definitely tracked.

    Note: In the near future we will offer even better tracking, including click fraud prevention tools and DNS error detection within our system.

  • A/B testing URL rotator. You can divert traffic from a traffic source, through BlipTo and then further to a group of Target URLs, visited in rotation. This way you can split the traffic between different landing pages (or offers) and then measure which one performs best.

    The problem: Most A/B testing tools are expensive and therefore out of reach for everyday users or small business.

    Solution: Our A/B rotator service is free. We hope you'll enjoy it, so why not using it each day from now on? It is also dead simple to install and use. Only certain advanced features are available for a fee.

  • Affiliate tracker. Affiliates usually divert paid traffic from a traffic source (example: paid ads) to an affiliate offer provided by a business. By doing so, each time they make a sale, they also earn some commission % out of that sale.

    Problem: Affiliates have no way of telling how many clics were really sent from a traffic source. They pay for each click; but later they cannot control how many are even sent their way.

    Solution: BlipTo will track those affiliate clicks for you, so you get control over your spending budget and traffic stats. Note: In the near future we plan to offer even better tracking and fraud detection whenever possible, and also DNS error detection.

Functionality

Professional features like BlipTo offers, are usually provided with a (very) high price tag. We are here to change this.

We believe in products empowering small businesses. We try to give as much as possible and focus less on the money. Helping a lot of users out, even for free, is a good business to be in.

With our product, you get professional-level features for free. And if you really enjoy our product, upgrading to a paid plan is also available, but optional - entirely up to you.

Our cloud technology is server-efficient, designed for efficiency and security. It's all built-in.

We also will look into an error for you if the system appears not to be working (system failures). Please email us right away in such case.

Otherwise, we do NOT offer support learning how to use the product or properly using it - the documentation is here to help with that. User forum will be made available soon.

Please note that we offer 24/7 uninterrupted service, even to our free users. Our online documentation is also here to explain each and every section, and provide tips and suggestions. Furthermore, the product is quite simple and easy to use.

For full support and premium features, you can select a paid account from within your user account. Paid accounts are entirely optional, mostly depending on whether you require high volume, advanced features and premium support. For most SME's, free accounts should be good enough.
