What are Redirection Types?

18 April, 2023

Linko has 5 types of redirection that you can use. Each of them is explained below.

Direct Redirection:

A direct redirection method redirects the user without any intermediate page. This is done via the server redirect. 

When sharing the link with a direct method, crawlers will directly fetch the target page. When using a pixel with the direct method, a page is shown briefly before redirection, which is required for the pixel to work.


Link Cloaking Redirection:

The Link cloaking redirection method is useful when you want to cloak a website like an affiliate page.

Note: some websites do not work with this method because of a security rule that forces browsers to hinder iframes.


Splash Redirection:

The splash page is an intermediate page very useful to give the user a preview of the page they are about to be redirected to. It serves as a measure of protection and provides the user with some time to react and decide whether they want to continue or not.


Custom Splash Redirection:

The custom splash redirect is a premium feature that allows customers to create their own promotional page and associate it with a short link. A user going through the custom splash page will see a promotional page briefly before being redirected.

Overlay Redirection:

The overlay feature is an excellent feature that allows you to use dynamic lead widgets. It uses the same principle as the frame method but without the top bar. Instead, it injects some cool widgets like a popup message, a contact form, or a poll.
