Sur.ly alters the outbound links on your site so that visitors can view external target pages without leaving your domain.

Feel free to check Sur.ly demo tour.

Sur.ly plugin replaces the outgoing links in comments, posts, etc (except for whitelisted links of your choice) with the links leading to intermediate pages on your subdomain. When users follow these links, they will seamlessly view the external target pages while technically staying within your domain.

Sur.ly accompanies, informs and protects users when they follow outbound links, so they can never bump into an adult or malware-infected content under links posted by other visitors.

Sur.ly can help you to:
  • Get rid of toxic and unsolicited outbound links.
  • Turn any risky outbound links into safe internal links to avoid Google penalty.
  • Cope with fake users signing up for your site to get backlinks.
  • Recapture users leaving via outbound links.
  • Keep users within your domain longer to reduce the bounce rate.
  • Shorten links down to neat and convenient alphanumeric identifiers.

I've just checked your site and there is no privacy or cookie policy so could you please answer a few questions regarding this mod?

When a user clicks one of your links....
Do you transmit any details about the user to your site or a 3rd party?
Do you collect any data about the user (analytics etc)?
Do you drop any cookies?
If so....
Is the data anonymous or identifiable?
Do you monetize the data collected?

Hi, Gio~Logist!

Sorry, there is XML file called product-surly.xml - that's what you need. We also added the link leading to Sur.ly installation instructions into the plugin's description
