How many people click on a shared link?

Recommended Posts

I shared a link to a note with a bunch of people.  Is it possible to track how many people actually clicked the link and viewed the note?

Hi.  It's not possible to track clicks though Evernote.  However if you share a shortened link,  such as http://bit.ly/2HRrPpt (links back to this page) the link provider will supply stats about who clicked on the link and when. 

Shortened links can be a little suspicious since they can be used to hide malware links too;  though again in Bitly - and presumably others - it's possible to personalize the links to make them more user-friendly.

Does Evernote have any plans to do URL shortening + tracking clicks?

Hi.  It is legitimate to count clicks on a page you own - it helps to fine-tune the content for users visiting your page.  How you count clicks depends on what your software can do for you.

Which software it is? I would like to try this one. Thank you so much!

I wasn't promoting one specific tool - what you can do depends on which app you are using and what type of content you're measuring.  At it's simplest there are link-shorteners like https://bitly.com/ which can change a long Evernote page link into something like https://bit.ly/2WQXBw1 (which links back to this page) - and will tell you how often that link gets clicked.

Otherwise - and depending on what you need - there's... https://shanebarker.com/blog/web-analytics-tools/
