Then you’ll add to the end
&ua_redirect=[whatever 180D link you want]

The only other step you might consider is abbreviating the link so it’s cleaner and shorter by using a link shortener like http://bitly.com In the above example, that URL would become the much more link-friendly:
This shortened URL will still generate your unique cookie, so feel free to cross-link any time you want to share something on 180DegreeHealth with your followers.
