How to Find Out if Someone Views the Photo Links You Send

If you regularly send emails containing links to your photographs, perhaps you’ve wondered whether the recipients actually viewed your images like they say they did. Was It Viewed? is a website that helps you easily make your links trackable. Simply provide the link and your email address for notification purposes, and the app will generate a special link you can send out. Whenever the link is clicked, you’ll receive an email notification informing you of the fact (along with some details about the clicker). For added stealthiness, the app can also package your link inside a shortened link to hide the fact that it’s tracked.

    I’m against link shortening services. I’ve developed a way to track page view: just add the “?ref=insertyouruniquestringhere” at the end and then send the link. Assuming you have Google Analytics, this could be done without third (or fourth) parties.

    Kind of creepy.
