I have a website with several articles and optimized seo urls. I want to add an url reference to those articles from a paper source.
1) i need a new url pointing to that articles, so I can see from the analytics how many people go to the online blog post from the paper source
2) I need to be able to shorten the url that will go to paper without altering the original post url
original url with content: www.mysite.web/original-content-url-too-long-to-write-on-paper
paper url: www.mysite.web/gohere1
When i go to www.mysite.web/gohere1 i want to get redirected to www.mysite.web/original-content-url-too-long-to-write-on-paper
How can I accomplish this? it is good to use 301 redirect? I'm not sure of it. There is any plugin that can help me to do this? Is the redirection plugin good for what I need to do?
