Thank you for your answer
I have to say that its a pitty that Bitly is no longer offering this feature, because it provided a means to differentiate between the hits coming from a digital shortened URL source as apposed to a printed QR code source.
I am working on a paper back book that will have a digital version of the same.
I began using the bitly qrcode for statistics to analyze how many users scan the QR code from the printed out version as opposed to the number of users that press the links in the digital version.
Using the same bitlly code once as a QR code and once as a shortened link, I could see the distribution of users coming from the 2 different sources.
I would appreciate any idea/tip you may have to provide me to continue working in this way. For instance, could there be a suffix or other parameter that I can add to the shortened URL (as Bitly had done by adding ".qrcode" to the end of the shortened URL) to obtain this functionality.??
Thanks in advance
