False Positives & Broken Communication Lines Cause DNS Hell

 

What else can 2020 throw at us? Turns out the year isn’t over yet and we’ve got a bit of a story for you…

In short, starting at approximately 22:30 pm PST on December 8th and gradually becoming more prominent over the next hour the geni.us domain was partially unavailable due to a DNS error. This broke a number of links using our service and thus clicks from these links wouldn’t resolve. The issue was fully resolved by 2:00 am on December 9th. 

Our sincerest apologies if this impacted you or your links during this time.

Ready for the details? It’s a bit of a crazy one…

Amazon Holiday Landing Pages, Associates are you ready?

Updated December 8th, 2020.

Calling all Amazon Associates! Are you ready for Amazon’s 2020 Black Friday and holiday rush?! It goes without saying that Black Friday / Cyber Monday / Cyber 5 presents the second-best monetization opportunity of the year for all Amazon Associates (it seems Prime Day might take the cake for the single best event).

URL Shortener Analytics to Track Clicks and Collect Data

Have you ever drafted the perfect tweet or YouTube description, and then the second you drop in a link to an article, and you have to share an ugly URL like this:

https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/gluten-free-christmas-sugar-cookies/d3ab2026-54a3-4ff5-9c81-3f38b30acd89

Not only is the link ugly, but you could be missing key analytics from people clicking on your link! Enter URL shortening services and URL shortener analytics. Not only can you shorten links like that to a clean and simple “https://geni.us/gfxmas” but you can also derive useful data about who is clicking your links.
