Yes and yes, and yes. +1
Hmm thanks for the input, @Protest. I will investigate further. I suppose it the problem could be on my end. Anyone else? I’m going to try reinstalling the app. I actually purchased the app around the time of the problem 2-3 months ago as you mentioned so it might have something to do with it.
So I bought the app. I like the design and elite countdown but I was really looking for an iPhone app with the Notification feature. From the get-go the notifications did not work. However, I believe there was an update which fixed the issue, it gave me one notification but stopped working ever since (maybe because I also use the chrome notifications?). If the dev is lurking here somewhere, please don’t forget about the app
I do also wonder if Google short links are also more preferred by Youtube than BitLy in terms of better SEO. It would make sense if they are, but I’m not sure. It does deserve further investigation.
Guys, I just noticed a few weeks ago my Youtube views were cut straight in half (I can see the graph cruising along for weeks with a slight increase and the bam a massive drop which hasn’t recovered). I knew I changed something around that time but I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what it was I changed. I just realized I can trace the drop to the day I changed from the google shortened links to the full audiojungle ref links in my description. (For the same reason of “I hope having short links doesn’t scare people off”)
I’m going to go for a bitly account and change them all back to shortened asap. I’ll keep you guys posted. Thank god for this thread or I would have been oblivious indefinately.
When I switched my links out from full URLs to Bitly a couple of years ago, I did indeed notice a big improvement in referrals.
This sure peaked my interest. I’m going to look into Bitly again. I also like the idea of monitoring clicks in terms of analytics. Thanks for the info Matt!
Awesome Envato, thanks for clearing that up for everybody!
