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.

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
