I'm sure most are aware of this but I wasn't  and wondered why this feature wasn't available until I realized it was but only if you upgraded to Bitly Enterprise. Probably not a good Idea to use it on a large scale because as I said it is a paid feature and I'm sure they'd probably find a way to make you feel the need to upgrade if you have a bunch of links out there using this process..if you know what I mean? Kinda like DROPBOX , Once they see you have a bunch of links out there getting a bunch of traffic they'll shut them off UNLESS YOU UPGRADE lol--Slick asses

AnyHoot..

As some of you may well know Bitly isn’t specifically designed for users to create multiple Bitlinks for a single long URL, unless you have the campaigns feature. The campaigns feature is only available for paid customers. For  free users that don’t have campaigns, they do have a Bitly trick that will help you out!

To create multiple Bitlinks for a single website, follow these steps:

1) Start by adding a hashtag to the end of the the long URL in excel or a word processor (not in the bitly.com shorten box) - for example:

  
Code:
 http://www.yourproduct.com/#

or

 
Code:
 http://www.yourproduct.com/buy#

2) Next, add a different unique identifying code to the end of the URL for each share- for example:

Code:
http://www.yourproduct.com/#01

or

  
Code:
http://www.yourproduct.com/#twitter

or

Code:
http://www.yourproduct.com/#website1


3) Now, you can shorten these new links using Bitly and a unique bitlink will be generated for each separate link.

Each of these Bitlinks will lead to the original URL, but you will be able to track them separately.




SOURCE: Bitly Themselves...
So you see it may well be a covert upgrade tactic..
Let you get a bunch of these links going then tell you.."Well, to continue you need to upgrade"....
Think about it..why would they show you an exploit to a paid featureEvil ..lol
Then again I'm kind of a nut case Shock

But I can confirm that it works though..I use this little workaround on smaller projects tho just to be safe lol

You can also use fake variables in the url:

example:
Code:
https://yourproduct.com/blog/spam.html?fake=variable

https://yourproduct.com/news/?from=twitter

https://yourproduct.com/?blahblah
