Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

photobucketSnip-n-Tag is a Firefox addon to easily shorten URLs, plus add Google Analytics tracking tags. Great for measuring traffic from Twitter. Snip-n-Tag currently supports four URL shortening services: tinyurl, tr.im, cli.gs, and is.gd. More services will be supported in the future, like bit.ly.

Three Google Analytics campaign tags are supported currently: medium, source and campaign.

We already covered a bookmarklet for adding Google Analytics tracking to short urls and also see some integrated stats with cli.gs but in case you would like to use some other short url service or just use a full-featured Firefox addon for this job, then give Snip-n-Tag a try.
