is the most common type of QR Code because it can lead mobile users to many types
of online content, such as a YouTube
video or channel, Facebook,
Twitter, Google Play,
an app, music, video, or other online store, PDF file, image file, online survey,

video, click SHARE and copy the URL (short URL's
and partner links can be used too.
You can use URLs with parameters that lead to dynamic (changing/interactive) content accordingly.
easy way to track your QRickit is to get a short URL from companies such as Bitly, Tiny URL, etc. Most offer URL management and tracking (which you can use to track the related QR Code - a click means someone scanned your QR Code and went to the URL). This is also recommended
if your URL is very long (more than 100 characters). A short URL is basically a URL forwarder which redirects users to your original "long" URL. Find a URL shortener service that allows you to modify the original "long" URL associated with the short URL so you can leep using the same QR Code. If you will be printing your QR Code on your marketing materials or product packaging, it is a good idea to use a URL shortening (forwarding) service in case your long URL changes later. You can create your own URL forwarder with 1 line of HTML. Click here to see code.
