Today, we are going to look at how we can track specific link details, the number of clicks and clicks location on our Android devices.

Sometimes we may want to track a specific link to know how many people have visited or clicked the link we put out on social media or our blogs.

This is very easy with the help of an Android app named Bitly. Bitly is a website to shorten long URL, and ever since it's been developed, Bitly has added a lot of features, part of which we can make use to track our links and customize shortened links to our taste.

Bitly app is very intuitive so no serious tutorial to learn how to use it.
