How To Create Trackable URL's with QR Codes.

Auction Direct USA QR Code

This has to be the simplest method of creating short, trackable URL's and an accompanying QR Code.

Use the short URL's within messages sent via tweets, blogs, & even SMS.

Check-it out: URL.IS

Actually, the simplest method might be used by many of us already. bit.ly adds QR codes to every shortened URL so if you're using bit.ly you're QR code is available by clicking the statistics link of the shortened URL or adding the ".qrcode" extension at the end of your links. Tracking the QR code usage is combined into the bit.ly stats so there is no need to view two different sources to find out who's clicking what. Here's a link to the bit.ly generated QR code for this post: http://bit.ly/esyVu1.qrcode and here's the shortened URL for everything else: http://bit.ly/esyVu1 The addition of the ".qrcode" extension to any shortened bit.ly link will give you access to the QR code for that link.

Great topic, Eric. And thanks for the tip, Bruce. Completely overlooked bit.ly's ability to make QR codes.
Eric Miltsch
@Bruce Yes, bit.ly def. another great resource for users to know about...thx for adding it.

I think Google's shortener is offering that service as well. Another site to checkout is http://myqr.co and my new personal favorite http://itsmyurls.com a url aggregator that allows you to create a qr code that points to your aggregator site. You can track scans on the code and clicks to each of your sites listed. It also isnt relageted to social links but any link you can think of. Cant wait until QR codes start to adopted by more people.
