Tracking a custom URL generated by WP plugin "Url Shortener Ultimate"

Hi,

we have a Wordpress website with the plugin "Url Shortener Ultimate" installed (https://wordpress.org/plugins/url-shortener-ultimate/). This plugin allows you to create custom URLs to transform e.g.: "mywebsite.com/about-us/history/photos" to "mywebsite.com/photos". 

 

By any chance, is there an existing way to track those short custom URLs. If I have  the short URL "mywebsite/donate" that points to the long URL 'mywebsite.com/help-us/donate", I would like to track how many visitors came  to the landing page through the short URL. 

 

Hope that makes sense. 

 

Many thanks.

Hi there

here are the steps

1) Use URL builder
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033867?hl=en
for the long url

For example
mywebsite.com/about-us/history/photos?utm_source=Shorten%20URL&utm_medium=Medium&utm_campaign=Donation

2) Make short url from mywebsite.com/about-us/history/photos?utm_source=Shorten%20URL&utm_medium=Medium&utm_campaign=Donation

3) Check the Campaigns report in Google Analytic (Donation Campaign)
