Using Vanity URLS

Last Updated: Mar 04, 2016 | Print this Article
 
  Woah there, partner! You'll need to set up your tracker subdomain/CNAME before you can use this feature. Click here for instructions.

Vanity URLs give you the ability to create clear, memorable, customized URLs for your Pardot landing pages, content files and custom redirects. All URLs will begin with your account's vanity subdomain, or CNAME. Using Vanity URLs, you can optionally customize the end of your links to replace Pardot's autogenerated address. The following would all be valid Vanity URLs:
  • go.site.com/winterpromo
  • go.site.com/winterpromo.html
  • go.site.com/2014/winterpromo
Note: Vanity URLs are not included in some editions of Pardot. If you do not currently have access to this feature and would like to add it, visit our Customer Resources page and click I’d like to upgrade or discuss my contract.

Instructions

  1. When creating or editing a landing page, content file or custom redirect, enter a Vanity URL in the Vanity URL text field or leave the field blank to use an autogenerated URL.
  2. If your Vanity URL is already in use in your account, you will be prompted to choose a new, unique value.
