[cont'd] if your boss ever got around to looking at the report that you spent all night working on. Was It Viewed allows you to easily track visits to a link. After providing a URL you will receive a shortened version that redirects to the original link and sends an email notification.
Was It Viewed is a very useful email marketing tool that ensures that you know exactly if and when the recipient opens the email that you sent them. After using it for a while you will wonder why email developers didn't add it as a standard feature when they came up with the idea in the first place.

Was It Viewed lets you do the same thing with no need for your own webserver or an expensive marketing service. The purpose of the site is to provide the public with a free powerful tool that provides a streamlined process with no hassle and it does that quite easily.
